Storage Drives Hot-Plug Conditions

The NVMe drives installed in the storage server are hot-pluggable, but this capability depends on how the drives are configured. To hot-plug a drive you must be able to take the drive offline before you can remove it. When you take the drive offline, you prevent any application from accessing the drive and remove the logical software links to the drive.

Note -  Replacing a drive does not require removing the storage server from a rack.
