Re: IBM eServer (xSeries) and HotSwap

It has been my experience that is the RAID controller's job to manage that. All of our xSeries hardware has had IBM ServeRAID cards that you manage with a utility CD or Java application once you're up and running. Many also come with an onboard QLogic card, but you must configure that with an onboard BIOS option at bootup.

We've never had to do anything special under Debian to make hot-swappable drives work, but we've always had these RAID cards or onboard controllers. Never trusted software RAID... There's no battery :)

I have eserver 342 with hot-swappable SCSI drives and I was unable to
re-detect them after inserting. This happened ~4 years ago, maybe it would
work now.

The OP problem may be the same. does kernel autodetect inserted drive and
connect it to the system so we can imediately use it?

The problem it here:    Is the Kernel required to intervent if I use the
                         Hardware Raid-1 (x335, x345) or Raid-5 (x365)?

Thanks, Greetings and nice Day/Evening
