G2 DL580 Drive Array

Hey guys, I am getting ready to replace the main board on our DL580. Once I swap the board can I just start the system up or will I have to reapply the drive configuration?

The drives are fine and are currently set up in a RAID 5. If I have to reconfigure the controller does anyone know if I can save that information to a disk and reapply it?

Thanks!

Yes.
Array configuration stored on SCSI drives and SmartArray controller will read configuration on first boot after board change.
