What is the alternate command for "kudzu" in RHEL6?

kishore the knight asked:

I used “kudzu” command in RHEL5 for scanning new devices connected to the server. But i am getting “command not found” error when I try the same in RHEL6.

What is the alternative command for scanning new devices connected to the server in RHEL6.
Pls help.

Thanks in advance.

My answer:


You should no longer need to run any command to detect new devices; they should be detected and configured automatically when you connect them. If you have a device that isn’t, then you should investigate that specifically.
