hot-plug issue with centos4.4 and fedora 6
I encountered same hot-plug issue on Centos 4.4 (2.6.9) and Fedora 6 (2.6.18).
8 SATA drives is connected to Supermicro 8-port SATA Card. When I hot remove (yank out) any of the drive (assume drive failed) Linux does not detect the drive has been removed. If I fdisk the removed drive, Centos terminal still shows the drive's partitions whereas Fedora 6 terminal hangs.
And when I put the drive back, both Centos and Fedora do not detect the drive.
Is there a way to let linux manually check if the sata drive is hot removed and hot added?
