You do not say which unix you are using.

ioscan is an hp-ux command

If you are on hp, then yes ...

ioscan -fn would be the command

You do not want the 'k' option, as this pulls out what is in the kernel, you want a fresh scan as things may have changed.

You can use the C option to specifiy class ...

ioscan -fnCtape would show the tape drives

You cannot restart a library from the unix command line, you would need to either use the library web console if it has one, or power cycle it.
