In AIX, on most fairly recent machines and for internal disks, you can use the diag command menus and the task selection menu to drill down to a single drive and turn on the identify light, if you turn on all the working drives then you could pull all the rest, as long as another partition is not using them

As for the second question, in light of the first question, just go for it because it does not sound like any one will miss you


aix, drive, hard
