How to add hdd with Linux booted


Hi,
Does anybody know how to add an SATA HDD with SUSE booted? Like how we plug-in an USB thumbdrive. Or there is no way to do this?

thanks...

You should be able to mount it with the mount command . fdisk -l should show you where it is (eg /dev/sdc) and then mount the relevant partition with

mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt/sata

You may need to specify the filesystem type with the -t option. See man mount

To physically add the hdd with the machine powered on, you would need hot-swap capability.

Cheers.

I did try that, but the system doesn't recognize when I insert a new drive and "fdisk -l" doesn't shown any new added HDD.

thanks....

Ding, ding, ding. We have a winner. The hot swap capability is from the controller.
