I have a couple of the same servers. I am running 4 drives in one and 8 in another and I have swapped many drives in these systems without having to bring them down.

Note that HP's hard drives for these servers fail a lot like once a year.

I don't know why you can't hot swap them. Are you using a Firmware Raid or a software one?
