Dell PowerEdge 4600 - How to recognize an existing RAID without data loss
Posted on 2008-10-13
We have a Dell Poweredge 4600 whose motherboard needed to be replaced. The refurbished system boots, however, does not recognize the existing RAID. The BIOS defaults to SCSI. If I change it to RAID, it indicates "data loss will occur". I would like to have the system reboot and recognize the existing RAID without loss of data on the system. The intention is to boot, backup the data and retire the system.
It is possible to boot to an existing RAID configuration without loss of data?
