7.3.3 System-stopped addition


7.3.3 System-stopped addition
This section describes the workflows for system-stopped/hot and system-stopped/cold FRU installation. References to detailed descriptions are written in the workflow. See any of them as required.
System-stopped addition has the following patterns:
System-stopped/hot addition (for an internal disk or PCIe card)
System-stopped/hot addition can be performed on a PCI Express card and an internal disk. Perform the following procedure to install the unit.
