Does my SATA Controller support HotPlug? Maybe you can help me? Maybe I'm missing something? or maybe I'm in denial? :)
If my SATA Controller does support HotPlug, how do I configure my system to recognize a HotPlug?

HDD is detected only when connected to eSATA port before booting into system. afterwards running 'tail -f /var/log/messages' and unplugging 'detected' HDD does not result on a output from 'tail -f /var/log/messages' as well as when the HDD is 'un-Detected'.

I had similar issues (had great plans involving eSATA & RAID5).
I ended up buying 4 cheap cards for eSATA (different brands) and every card had different kinds of problems (one of them being the one you mentioned, others not recognizing the correct HDD size, etc...).
None was 100% reliable, so in the end I gave up eSATA.
Sad story... :wink:

slicktux,

Code:
00:1f.2 SATA controller: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset 6 port SATA AHCI Controller (rev 05)
should worh as long as the BIOS is not running your SATA in legacy/IDE/compatability mode. Then the eSATA port may not work at all.

Hot plug support has been in the SATA specification from the outset. Some first generation hardware was broken by design an a few drivers took a while to catch up.
Neither of those things affect you.

You may need either or both of
Code:
[ ]   SATA Port Multiplier support
< >   Platform AHCI SATA support
set in your kernel.
