How do you eject a hot-plugged SAS drive?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

My chassis has a few hot swappable HDD bays, internally connected to a LSI SAS2008 based HBA card (ASUS PIKE 2008 flashed with IT firmware.) How do I safely eject a drive from that?

Anything to do before that? Like flushing caches or tell the system I am going to pull it?
