Hi,
I have a an array accelerator that is configured as raid 5, what if i removed 2 harddisks while the server is running i know it will fail but will it cause damage to the server after i put them back or only it will shutdown safely?

The first question is why would you want to do what you have posted?

Next question, does this controller support hot swapping of drives?

yes it support, the reason is, I have HP DL 380 G4,smart array 6400 the controller configuration showing 1 logical drive RAID 5. in the more information its showing Raid 6 (ADG) is enabled. does this mean its configured as RAID 6 and it can tolerate 2 drives failure?
also for information as what happens :D

I would have no idea. You need to either read your manual or contact hp tech support.
