Notes: This action is not supported when using the following:
Some IBM servers support Active PCI (also called hot-plug PCI) features. You
can use these features to install or remove PCI controllers without turning
off the server. The following table summarizes which operating systems support
|Feature||Windows NT 4.0||Windows 2000||Windows Server 2003||NetWare 4.x||NetWare 5.x|
You can use the hot-add feature to add a controller to a running server, thus expanding its capacity.
Note: If you are not using the hot-add feature, restore the controller to the factory-default settings before configuring arrays and logical drives.
Use the hot-remove feature to remove a controller from a running server. If a controller fails, use the hot-replace feature to replace a controller with an identical controller.
Attention: Do not attempt a hot-replace operation on Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003, or NetWare by hot-removing a failed controller and then hot-adding a new controller. Loss of data can occur. If a controller fails on these operating systems, you must shut down the server to replace the controller.
