Re: How to find whether a disk is hot swappable

It depends on the hardware (server or enclosure model).


What model do you have?

Hope this helps!

"vgdisplay -v "

With this you cannot see if a disk is or is not hot-swappable......

Re: How to find whether a disk is hot swappable

IMHO as long as you don't have really old hardware (e.g. K-class, V-class, some D-class models, e-class and older), the internal disks should be hot pluggable.

Tell us about your hardware and we will see ...




BTW, there is NO command that tells you if a disk is hot pluggable or not.

Hope this helps!

Shalom,

"Mark one eyeballs" A quote from the series battlestar galactica as pilots searched for a missing pilot without sensors.

It applies here.

Some things you just have to do by looking.
