Smart array P410 change to P408i - Set up old disks with new controller

Hi everyone.

I have just upgraded an old ML110 server with a ML30 Gen10.

Unfortunatly the P410 smart array card that was in the ML110 will not work with the ML30.

So I have a P408 Gen10 smart array card on its way to me.

I just wanted to know is it as simple as plugging in the old disk array and setting up on the new controller or will I have to mess around to get it all to work?

 

Thanks Dave

Hello,

I would request you take the complete data backup before doing this activity or change the SA controller card ( raid card) As well as this is not a recommendation for  change the SA controller ( raid controller ) with the different SA controller card ( raid card)

Please follow the below quick space for your reference.

The P408 should recognise the existing array. Try to keep the drives in the same bay/slot order.

As with anytime you areworking with drives and arrays be sure to have a valid backup of your data.

Yes indeed. Just plugged everything in (in same order) and worked like a charm. Very good news.

Thanks for the answer.
