     Are you saying that you cannot replace a failed drive without

under Solaris you_can_  replace failed drives with no downtime to the
end users, we do it on a regular basis.

     I suspect there is a method to replace a failed drive under
FreeBSD with no outage (assuming the drive is in a hot swap capable
enclosure), but as I am not familiar with FreeBSD I do not know what
it is.

Hm no, that's not what I meant, I guess I shouldn't have included that. Simply offlining the device (to make sure no attempts to access it are made) should be sufficient if you indeed assume a hotswap bay.
