Disk Swap on DL320G5 P400 SAS

Hi Folks

 

Is it possible to simply remove the drives of a failed DL320G5 server with a P400 Controller and insert them into another DL320G5 with a P400 controller also and have the new server see the old RAID Array?

The RAID in question here is a RAID1 array. Is the RAID information stored on the drives or in the controller?

 

Thanks

 

Andy

Yes.

 

The RAID setup and status i stored on the disks.

 

I will recommend that you ensure, that the spare server got at least the same FW/BIOS level, or newer as the failed server.

Also, If the RAID controller need cache battery for RAID 5, and if you use RAID 5, ensure you got a battery o the spare server as well.
