Why Hot-Plug Modules but Not Plug-and-Play I/O Modules

Right now i and Gökhan is working on to introduce iSCSI I/O module to VNX storage. We expected that without stop i/o we can plug and go the iscsi card but not ! We have to reboot both i/o controller together to initialize cards. Somebody can say what you expecting what happened if you have IBM or Netapp storages, pls see below

Check the link http://www.emc.com/storage/vnx/vnx-series.htm , its said that AUTOMATED, what is automated ? I’m still up and waiting the steps over , its take closer a hour

Why recognized I/O modules need to be restart SPs for initialize, this is cloud world and cloud storages need to be more flexible, i believe the programmers and logic can handle it

Is it really hard to created manually powered bus and recognize and initialize the i/o module like kudzu in Linux
