Upgrade from HBA H240 to Smart Array P840

Hi All,

I have a DL-180 G9 with 4 HDD in raid 10 conected to a H240 Card.

Because we need more storage performance, we brought a Smart array P840 card.

Now the question is; will the P840 recognize the raid made by the H240 or I will have to rebuilt the raid from scratch?

Thanks!

Raid configuration is stored on the drives, so the new controller should recongnize the array. Remember to always have a recent backup of your data before working with any drives.

Yes,  it should recongnize them... 

I will try, then I will post the results here.

Thanks!!!

Hi All!

I confirm that the P840 Raid controller will recongnize the Raid made by an H240 Card.

Thanks!
