    hi,

     

    yes it is non-disruptive.

     

    just read the procedure available in the switch hardware guide.

    The 8510 Hardware Reference Manual referenced above can be found here:

     

    (Replacing a Blade)

    http://www.brocade.com/downloads/documents/html_product_manuals/DCX_8510_8_HRM_07/GUID-3420C9D9-B0E8-400B-A134-F8752ECA114A.html

     

    I' m not sure what your 8510 configuration is, but you should also take a look at the release notes for the firmware you are runniing.

    Specifically the sections below:

     

    "Typical Power Supply Requirements Guidelines for Blades in DCX 8510"

    "DCX 8510-8/DCX 8510-4 Blade Support Matrix"

     

    Cheers,

    just check for the loose screws on the new blade before inserting it ;)
