Re: ML 350 G5 disk recovery

Hi,

You don't say what sort of RAID controller is in your server, but assuming that it is a SmartArray of some form, then you should just be able to swap the drives, as the RAID configuration is stored on the drives, not (just) the controller.

Just be careful to read any messages that the SmartArray may display when it boots.

Cheers,

Rob

If the hardware is identical and you have a smartarray controller then it should be as simple as a strait swap.
