ML370 G3 Smart Raid 64x question

Hi

The Smart Raid 64X controller has just died in our ML370 G3 :-(

I've reseated it and tried it in another PCI-X slot but it doesn't appear in the PCI device listing of the RBSU anymore.

A new controller is winging it's way to me as we speak but I've a few questions:

Where is the array configuration stored?
On the controller or on the disks or bothe (like the old 3si's i hope)?

So, when I replace the controller will the array config be read from the disks permitting a quick clean recovery or will the arrays have to be reconfigured and the system & data restored from backups?

Can anyone point me to a manual for the Smart Array 64x contoller, I've trawled endlessley with no result!

Thanks
Roy

Hi Roy,

the configuration is stored on the disks. So it shouldn't be too much hassle to get at your data again.

Also, I couldn't find the user guide on HP's site, but I have a copy here, and attached it.
