Adding new VM hard drive without rebooting on linux

A Great little article on how to add a hard drive on a linux based Guest OS, without actually booting it. I knew this was possible but it saved me the hassle of experiementing on my own process!

Article is here:

The bits after the rescan , I used system-config-lvm (i.e Fedora/RH based OSes) as we have different requirements to create extra LVM partitions.

Neat!
