Pinned topic Quick question: how to replace SCSI HDD Hot-swap in xServer 236?

‏2013-01-16T10:22:09Z |
Hi,
I just want to make sure, can I just take out the broken SCSI HDD Hot-swap in the xServer 236 (8841) and then replace it with a new one?
I'm using IBM's RAID Manager software to auto-manage the RAID 1 configuration in that server, do I need to configure something in the software before and after I replace the SCSI HDD?
Thanks, appreciate all the help.

    Dear Alexander,

    I'm just wondering, is the SCSI HDD will automatically formatted when I insert it into the server?

    I'm asking because the SCSI HDD replacement unit might contain some kind of virus or malwares, you never know since, better take precautions steps right?
