Can I remove a virtual hard drive from a VM while it is running on VMWare Fusion 12?

I am currently taking an IT class and we are using VMWare for Linux administration. I have a lab where we are handling lots of scenarios with disks, partitions, RAID, etc.

The thing causing me problems is that it seems like it is possible for my professor to remove a hard drive while running a VM (to simulate hard drive failure), but I am not able to follow along, since Fusion requires a VM to be shutdown before drives can be removed, and this is causing me many issues (for my grade).

Is there any way to make VMWare Fusion 12.1.0 (professional) let me remove a secondary drive while the VM is running?

Thanks in advance for any insight.
