A RAID-1 is simply a mirror. If the RAID-controller hasn't written any custom controller data to the disk, you should be able to connect the disk to another server without a problem.

This is true if the other server does not have a RAID, but my other server has a RAID built-in.

What RAID controller is it, not what RAID level is it.

If it's onboard then what motherboard, server make/model or whatever?

The 2 servers are IBM, the original is x206 with built-in RAID 8 controller, an the other one is x3650 with IBM ServerRaid 8k.

I solved the problem by disabling RAID support. The controller was then able to see the corrupted disk. I was able to repair it and then re-install it on the original server.
Thank you.
