how to hot remove/add a tape

hi all Smilie

i'd like to remove a broken scsi tape device from a system p5 520. it is the only device on the external scsi hookup.
then i would like to add a new scsi tape device (same model).

is this, and if - how ?, doable without rebooting? (using aix 5.3)

best regards,

IMO, you just need to run cfgmgr command after attaching the device and you are done.
