Can I connect eSATA disk while server is powered or do I need to shut it down?

I have to connect eSATA disk to server and do I need to shut down server before this operation or not? Does it behave like PS2 or can I connect it on-the-go like USB?

An eSATA port it "hot swappable" and can be plugged in and removed while the computer is on. However, in XP and below you must eject the device before removing.
