I have a Compaq Proliant ML370 server with 5 drives. The Compaq array configuration utilty (ACU) was never installed. My question is if I install it now will I loose my current data on the drives?

More info: 5 drives at 18.2GB Ultra SCSI ,4 with lites - 1 without lites, Smart Array 5300, Windows 2003 Server Enterprise ed. with SP2 as a DC, and Backupexec 11d. This server is also my backup server.

The ACU does not make any changes when you install it.  It simply allows you to view and modify you array configuration from within the Operating System.

So, you can proceed safely.
