I have a 160/320 SDLT (Part# 257319-B21) connected via a Compaq StorageWorks
5U Rackmount Enclosure (Part #274339-b21). This connects to an ES47 via a
Dual PCI SE LVD Ultra adapter (3X-KZPEA-DB). The SDLT is the only device on
Can I hot swap this ailing drive?
The 5U Enclosure manual doesn't mention anything about hot swapping. This
is the type of enclosure that you to have manually connect the SCSI and
power cables to the drive, not a side-in/side-out cableless type of deal.
Can I power off the Enclosure and do the swap with the ES47 online? Or,
will I have to reboot? Am I also risking a system crash by doing this?
