Smart Array raid configuration (RIS)

Hi,
I confused some thing a bit.
There are two disks in our server(DL380G4 -
2x36GB 15k- RAID 1). I know that HP SA raid controller stores raid configuration in raid controller memory and disks as well. It means that i can remove disks and bring back the disks without data and raid configuration corruption on them.
I done it.
1)I powered down server and removed disks from the server.
2) Then I installed and configured other disks in this server.
3) After that I powered down the server and removed new disks.
4)Finally I brought back the disks which were located in the server at first.
After powering up the server i saw an error message that disks are not configured.
Why raid controller did not read the raid configuration from these disks?
Thank You very much!

Hi

You can try to start the server without any disk & try to clear any configuration exists( Please remember, you shouldn't put any of the hdd).

Then you put back the hdds which was installed on this server ( in the correct slots, if possible). Controller should detect the array present on hdds.

Please let me know the status,,,

Thanks a lot.
Really, after clearing configuration the SA controller could detected RIS on the old disks properly.
