Switch Widows Server 2003 to a new Raid Controller
Posted on 2009-04-04
I have a windows 2003 server running primarily as a web, email, and dns server. It was set up with a motherboard integrated ATI RAID 1 (mirroring). The integrated RAID has been nothing but trouble. We'd like to switch to a name brand RAID controller--we're considering a 3ware.
The RAID is RAID 1 consisting of two 500Gb SATA drives.
Question--Is it possible to migrate this windows installation to another more reliable RAID without having to reinstall? A lot of work went into the configuration of this server that we would prefer not to loose and "Start Over".
