Can you add a new disk into 9333 with its power on?

ITEM: RTA000064116

An SE in marketing raised the following question.  Could you provide            
me with the answer?  I could not find descriptioion about it in any             
documentation except that you can exchange disks with power on.                 
"Can you add new disks (PVs) into 9333-501 with its power on?"                  
I believe the answer is YES, and after putting the new disks, you               
can make system (AIX) recognize the new disks by 'cfgmgr' or issuing            
'mkdev' command.                                                                
Is my understanding right?                                                      
   You are correct, the disk in the 9333 is hot swappable.  The 9333 can        
   have concurrent maintenance of the disk drives while the subsystem           
   is active.   Once the new disk is installed, you can run mkdev or           
   cfgmgr to make the disk available to the system.                             
   Note that other parts of the 9333 do not allow concurrent maintenance.       
   The fan and power supply replacement requires powering down the
