Server RAID controler

Hi, I want to change the RAID controller from PCIe Slot 1 to slot 4 of woking server.Is it possible to change the controller PCI slot to other slot without lossing data. Because I have seen one document for DL 380G5 server P400 controller should be in Slot 3 0r 4 or 5 to expand and extend the logical drive. So pls let me know if anybody knows abt this....

You can change slots no problem but before you make a data backup.

Re: Server RAID controler

As long as you move to a supported slot (speed and type must match), you can move the controller around.

Hope this helps!

Re: Server RAID controler

So I can expand the Array from the same slot
(Slot 1). I have ordered the BBWC kit.
I am waiting for the kit. Now the controller is having only 256 MB cache without battery.
ACU is not showing any expand or extend option after I installed the 2 new HDD in the servr.
So pls reply in this case.?

Re: Server RAID controler

Quickspecs, say adding BBWC will enable Expansion and Extension.
So these option will not be available in ACU, untill you have added the BBWC

Quick Specs:

And just in case ACU Userguide:
