DL380 G3 hotswap hard drives??

I read some posts on internet and also n HP website about DL 380 G3 and got confused, hence this question,. My company has a DL 380 G3 where in a hard drive has failed which needs replacement. I am not sure if the hard drive bay supports hot swap of hard drive or not. Please can someone confirm? I have searched hp.com to look for an acuurate answer but couldn't find one.

This server has a Smart Array 5i by default, so hot swap is supported for all RAIDs except RAID0. A RAID 0 will not survive, you need to rebuild it after swapping out the drive.


Hope this helps!
