Description: Add or remove SCSI devices by rescanning the bus.
 scsiadd allows you to add or remove SCSI devices without having to restart
 the computer.  This is *NOT* a substitute for powering down to connect or
 disconnect hardware unless it's specifically designed to be hot swappable.
 Use it to enable the external SCSI drive you only use occasionally so is
 powered off when the machine first boots, or to rescan the bus after moving
 hot-swap drives around.  scsiadd will also try to prevent you from doing
 anything to disrupt drive names that are in use.
 Similar functionality is available by echoing text to /proc/scsi/scsi

Don't know if it exists in Potato, though.
