Forcing a rescan of the SCSI buses on Win NT 4

How annoying it can be to find that the SCSI device you attached to the system is not recognised at bootup. Don't despair and restart Windows NT. Just open Disk Administrator. When it says, "Initializing," what it does is scan all of the SCSI buses in the PC. So, hey presto! Your device will be available for use without a lengthy reboot.
