Is it possible to install an interface card, in this case LSW1GP16P0 to a HP 5800(JC103A) without powering off the switch? The installation guide is not very clear on that point.

1 Answer 1


Interface cards on the 5800 series are all hot swappable.

The HPE 5820X & 5800 Switch Series Installation Guide has them listed as "Hot swappable interface cards" on p. 87.
