LUNs on your storage virtual machine (SVM) appear as disks to the Windows host. Any new disks for LUNs you add to your system are not automatically discovered by the host. You must manually rescan disks to discover them.

    If you are using…​ Navigate to…​

    Windows Server 2012

    Tools > Computer Management

    Windows Server 2008

    Start > Administrative Tools > Computer Management

    Windows Server 2016

    Start > Administrative Tools > Computer Management

  2. Expand the Storage node in the navigation tree.

  3. Click Disk Management.

  4. Click Action > Rescan Disks.
