Thanks for answer.
Yes I want to avoid mounting (with exception to main system hdd of course) but not only. I don't know what special sata/scsi commands are sent to device by system. Maybe some keep-alive checks from time to time. I would like to block them all and make system unable to normally use of a drive.
By hot-plugging I mean not a external usb drives - I would like to connect and disconnect regular SATA and SCSI drives on the fly (it doesn't matter that it can be dangerous for hardware
Unfortunately there are no /etc/hotplug directory in ubuntu. Do they handle it in different way?
