Just need some guidance please.

One of the three psu's developed a fault on a compaq proliant 8000. i have a replacement and just wondered if i should just whip out the old and insert the new without turning off the power. My anxiety (and may be totally unfounded due to lack of experience/knowledge) is that a possible power disturbance might damage the hard drives. One drive has already gone down and i think this may have been caused by the power failure so i am down to three disks on a Raid 5 set up. I realise that if i lose one more then i may lose all the data (currently frantically backing up the whole server at the moment).

Thanks in advance.

They are made to be hot swap.

That's the reason you pay so much money for those things.

Should be OK.
