Original question:

E6500/Solaris8,  JNI cards -> Brocade switch -> EMC Symmetrix

Update sd.conf with additional disks, execute devfsadm/disks/devlinks

Can't see new devices...why??

Many thanks to all who replied, most, if not all, correctly: Additionally,
a great suggestion is to be proactive and list
additional devices prior to actual installation in sd.conf. This way a
reboot can be avoided.

You'll have to reboot because you added your sd.conf entries while it is
What we've done so we avoid reboots is open up our sd.conf to all possible
target - lun combinations to make possible on-line disk
additions/configurations (max out your LUNS per possible taerget to 255 in
each server's sd.conf and reboot).
