Hi, I have an issue with the 80 Gig sata drives. Firstly I was after some documentation that explains in detail the cold Swap process. The questions I have are:

1.Which drive is considered the primary drive. If for example you have 2 drives and both have valid Operating systems on them. This could happen in an a failed upgrade process. I like to be sure we boot to the correct disk - is one slot more likely to boot than the other?

2.With the OLD standard SCSI RAID on the HPs - you could be sure which disk would boot as you could introduce the new drive once the server was up and running and the booted derive would be the primary drive.?

Any help Much appreciated.Thanks Mark

Did you find any suitable information? as I also would like to have more info on this set-up. From I have found Hot-plugging doesn't work or isn't allowed.
