fyi - it is really hot swap or hot plug, not hard-swap

check the documentation at hp.com

HP calls stuff that a owner can replace a CRU (customer replaceable unit). "A CRU is defined as hot-plug if it can be removed from the chassis while the system remains operational, but requires software intervention before it is removed. ... A CRU is hot-swap if it can be removed from the chassis while the server remains operational and requires no software intervention before it is removed."

See: HP User Service Guide, HP Integrity rx8640, HP 9000 rp8440 Server
