Re: How to hot swap an SCA SCSI disk with NetBSD

Generally speaking, SCA SCSI drives are hot-swap capable.

I'm not interested in fiddling with 50-pin or 68-pin with a paused machine - 
that's (as you note) a recipe for errors and filesystem corruption.

The key thing in documentation is not just how, but why.

For example, why "scsictl <dev> detach"? Why not just "stop" and remove?

The idea here is to document a procedure generally. Odds are good lots of it 
would apply to SAS drives, too.
