What is your system hardware? What is your solaris version? with some systems you can manage disks (remove/add disk drives) without having to power off your system.

If your system has a hardware raid controller to mange disks, then you need to refer to your system raid controller user guide.

Some systems can detect newly inserted disks without having to reboot the system.
