Changing Mirroring RAID disks

Hello ..


I have a DL380 server with raid configured as mirroring with only two harddisks ( 0 and  1)


As we lost some files due to a software bug I removed both the HD's ( 0 and 1).


Instead I put an old harddisk which was like backup into slot 0 and started the PC but it didn't start as the backup harddisk was originally for slot 1.


So i put it in slot 1 and it started and all is fine.


Now I have a blank new harddisk, if I put it in slot 0 will it rebuild from slot 1 ?


Or will it copy from slot 0 to slot 1 and both disks will be blank ?


Please reply. Thanks.
