Hi Managers,

judging from the number of replies, this looks like a question that everybody on
the list knew but me.

The solution is to: setenv auto-boot? false before doing the reset all to
prevent a reboot.

Then probe-scsi should work. Be sure to set auto-boot back to true if you want
that behavior.

Thanks to all (too many to list)
