Not all SATA drives support hot-swap. Especially older models do not seem to work correctly and require the system to be rebooted, despite the fact that the controller works well with newer drives.
QUESTION: How do I check if a drive supports hot-swap, without unplugging and plugging it?
I would like to think that it could be achieved using
hdparm but I can't find it. Maybe there some other means available? Can someone advise?
