SUMMARY: A1000 battery question

Well...the votes are unanimous (for the most part), and the answer is yes,
they are hot swappable.

So far I have swapped out 4 batteries - 4 remaining, and I have not had an
issue as of yet.  I took the suggestion to disable write cache on the arrays
about 15 minutes prior to replacing the battery (even though 3 of the 4 were
already disabled due to the battery issue), then enable it again after the
new batteries have charged (I also did this at a time of low traffic).
Simple as that.

Thanks All!!!

Hey All,

    Quick question:  Has anyone has success replacing dead batteries in the
A1000 hot?  I know sun says no, but the batteries are dead anyway and just
seems ridiculous you have to take down a system to replace it.

Just looking for some first hand experience with this.
