Hot Swap the actual drive in a Caddy
Posted on 2012-09-20
I hope this is a simple question but I thought I would check
I had a drive failure in a Proliant Server that has 4 Hot Swapable SATA hard drives.
I bought a new drive in a Caddy and replaced it, (all worked fine after the rebuild, phew!)
I now obviously have a spare caddy with a dead drive, can I just remove the dead drive from the spare caddy and replace it for a standard new one, OR do server hot swapable drives have some specific firmware or something that makes them special?
