After create the LUN and attach on the host You can run "echo 1 > /sys/block/device_name/device/rescan" to scan the disk or reboot your system.
After run "fdisk -l " to list all disks, you will see internal disks and luns.

Use the below commands to identify the newly added lun in the server.

dmesg|grep scsi
echo "- - -" > /sys/class/scsi_host/host5/scan
cat /proc/scsi/scsi
fdisk -l
