Re: Upgrade from software-based RAID5 to hardware-based RAID5

Hi

Be aware of the difference between Soft and Hard Raid : with Soft Raid, the OS sees all your drives - with Hard Raid , the OS only sees 1 drive ( 1 logical volume which is presented by the Raid Controller )

I think you will have to to a backup of data , erase system, create new Raid volume with Raid controller and restore data to new volume
