DL380 G7 Driver Array Controller Failure

Hi,

 

I have DL380 G7 server that the Driver Array Controller Failure. If I change controller would it make no risk of data loss  or broke RAID configuration?

 

Thank

Re: DL380 G7 Driver Array Controller Failure

The Smart Array array configuration information is stored in what is knows as the 'RIS' area on each disk. The array information is not stored in the controller. During POST the controller queries the disks for the configuration information.  The standard controller in the DL380 is embedded in the system board. If the controller has failed you will need to either replace the system board or add in a separate controller.
