New drive Poweredge T340

lv flag

Maybe a dumb question. In order to install a extra 3.5" drive I must shutdown the server and install? Or can I pop-out a front bay and install while powered on? And later format the new drive.

It depends on your disk controller, there are three options;

H330 - its specs specifically states it can handle hot-swap/insertion. H730p - there's no mention in its specs if it does hot-swap/insertion at all for some reason. HBA330 - I can't find the specs at all (!) but the shared '330' bit of its name suggests it might/should work.

Hope this helps.

I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
