Hi:

Thanks for your reply. Can you please send me some link which shows that HP MSL 8096 is Hot swap supported in terms of Power Supply & Drives. As I am not able to find this details at all in online (or) also in the Manual of MSL8096

Can you also help me to differentiate the MSL Library between MSL8096 Vs MSL6060, Where MSL6060 clearly says that the power supply & drives are hot swap for (power Supply) & Live Swap/Hot Swap for (Drives),

Similarly I cannot see any relevant documents online which says MSL8096 support hot swap Power Supply & Drives. I found online about power supply which can support redundant which is optional but no information on hot swap.

Thanks...!

Hallo,
MSL6000 has default two power supply, msl8098 has one. Hotswap with one supply? buy a redundant power supply upgradekit (AH220A) then you can hotplug one supply..

"With the addition of the redundant power supply option, the user can attain, and maintain, even higher system reliability and up-time."

HI :

Thanks for your support, your information shared to me was more valuable.

I had a meeting with HP team, they confirmed me that the drive supports Hot Swap, But Power supply dose not supports Hot Swap Option, however it is redundant.

Anyways I have decided to go with HP MSL6060 Coz this is far better than the MSL8096.

I thank you once again for your kind help.

Regardsâ ¦!
