well, unless if it was RAID 0... :rofl:

or a RAID controller problem.

To be fair if it were RAID 0, the server would be having major issues and users wouldn't be able to access their data anyway.  What difference would it make if it went down at that point.  A RAID controller issue probably the same thing, users wouldn't be able to access their data so again what difference would it make if it went down or not.  Can only really do a hot swap when a system is running, if it is down you can hot swap all you want, it will still be down.
