How to hot swap disk drives in an MA6000/HSG60

Hello...

I have an MA6000/HSG60 with 12 disks.
One of this disks failed, it is a member of a raid5-set.
I just wanted to know if i could just pull the non-working disk out and put the new one in?
With my current understanding, the HSG60 should begin with the reconstruction of the disk after the new disk has been inserted.

Is that right or do i have to do a "delete DISKxxxxx" and after that a "add disk ..." on the HSG60 in order to get this disk to work??

thanks for your help....

It is possible to hot swap a drive on a HSG80 as well as a HSG60. If you have a spareset defined, one of the spareset members will automaticaly become part of the raidset. If you type "show fail" you will see the failed disk in that set.
