Big ADU Array Problems with HP ProLiant DL360p Gen8

Hello ppl,

it sounds like a joke, but one of my workers missunderstood my order and pulled 6x 146GB SAS drives out of a powered off server, since i was stupid enough to think that this never gonna happen, we dont know the original positions of the harddrive, i already openend the Array Configuration Utility, did the diagnostics, but iam to stupid to find where the original drive order is ? I need your Help guys it is a RAID 50 System.

Second Question, if the array controller would be reconfigured, the DATABASE on that Harddrives will be lost? :O

 

attached some pics they may help

Smart Array controllers write a header to the drive with a copy of the RAID config.

If the drives were simply removed and then put back in, they should be fine, even in the wrong order.

I would boot to Intelligent Provisioning and then go into SSA (Storage Array Config) and see if it is able to detect the drive configuration and if it says you still have problems.
