Hotswapping harddisks in freebsd
Officially you should have a 1000$ controller to do this, but i never saw a controller who could not do this. The only damage i have seen with hotswaping has been a wasted psu bicause the person who did the switch couldnt manage to put the cable straight in the plug. potato# atacontrol list ATA channel 0: Master: ad0 <QUANTUM FIREBALL_TM3840A/A6B.2400> ATA/ATAPI rev 0 Slave: no device present ATA channel 1: Master: no device present Slave: no device present potato# atacontrol detach 1 (here i wend out and mounted a 15 gig IBM harddrive in the server) potato# atacontrol attach 1 Master: ad2 <IBM-DJNA-351520/J56OA30K> ATA/ATAPI rev 4 Slave: no device present And as you saw it detected the harddisk, now just partition and format it.
