hi,

if you are using smartarray raid cards the raid information is held on the disks so you wil not lose the raid config if you move them to another server with a smartarry raid card.

Re: removing and rebuilding raid array

My doubt is, do you want to keep the data on the disks you are moving to the new servers?

As stated above, if the disks are in RAID and you move all the disks in the RAID at the same time, the Smart Array controllers will keep the data.

If you just need the disks and not the data on them, clear the configuration on them before moving them to a new server.
