Abstract

See full text

A method for the hot add and swap of I.sub.2 O compliant input/output platforms and adapters. The method allows users to perform the hot replace failed components, upgrade outdated components, and add new functionality, such as new network interfaces, disk interface adapters and storage, without impacting existing users. The method supports the hot add and swap of off-the-shelf adapters, including those adapters that are programmable.
