I assume that all of the array data is written to the disks and if I plug them into a new a server it will pick up the array but my backup admin is telling me he dosen't have any backups for the server so i need some verification.

If the raid card isn't bad move that as well. The raid card holds the config for the raid setup.

If you can not move the raid card because it is the wrong slot style or what ever, you can attempt to plug them into the new RAID card and when the raid asks you what to do you need to tell it to pull the raid config from the drives.

Depending on the age difference of the old raid card and the new one will determine weather what I have written above will work or if you will not be able to recover at all.

If you can not move the RAID card I would move forward cautiously.


Good Luck,
