  1. Problem
I've added a new disk to my Ubuntu 20 LTS VM and it isn't showing up without a reboot.
  1. Solution
Probe all SCSI hosts in the VM:
# echo "- - -" | tee /sys/class/scsi_host/host*/scan
# dmesg | grep sd

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
