DL360G3 Hot Plug HDD Issue

I have a problem with DL360G3's running Windows 2000. I've powered the server down, removed the hdd in slot 1 then powered the server up. So you would think the controller thinks the hdd has failed. It runs fine. I then plug a brand new drive into slot 1 and the server freezes up. All disk activity stops on hdd0 and hdd1 shows the red LED. I have to power down. When the server comes back up the array rebuilds and everything is good. I've tested this on 3 different G3's and get the same result. I'm willing to bet if I do have a hdd failure I'm going to have to take the server down to replace it. Not cool! The above test works fine on dl360G1's and G2's. I can power down, remove a drive, power up, and hot-plug the drive back in. The server does not lock up and the array rebuilds fine.
