How to reload udev rules

If you made changes in udev rules, you might want to reboot to apply the changes. But, there’s a simpler method than system reboot.

It depends which version you are using. I’ll put RHEL5 and RHEL6 commands which might cover most scenario.

In RHEL5

$ yum install udev

$ udevcontrol reload_rules
$ /sbin/start_udev
$ udevtrigger

In RHEL6

$ udevadm control --reload-rules
$ udevadm trigger --type=devices --action=change
