Proliant DL380p Gen8 HDD Swap

Please excuse my limited knowledge with this, but I have a Proliant DL380p Gen8 with 15k 300gb SAS drives (x8) and one of those drives is bad. I understand the drives are hot swappable, but does anything need to be done on the software side after a new drive is swapped in?

The drives are indeed hot-swappable, but you need to undersand the RAID level of the array the defective drive is in.  The normal routine is to just replace the failed disk and it will rebuild, the OS generally doesn't know there is RAID as the array just presents a logical drive to the OS.
