Convert Software to Hardware RAID
Posted on 2010-08-30
Our HP hardware RAID controller died in an ML350-G3. I managed to hook up a SATA drive and restore the OS to the system - worked fine. As there was going to be a delay in getting a replacement controller, I inserted a 2nd SATA drive, set them up as dynamic drives and then created a software mirror - this has been working fine for a number of weeks
I now have the replacement RAID controller & have set up a fresh mirrored blank array on two SAS discs. Any ideas what will happen when I clone (Norton Ghost) the SATA software raid OS onto the SAS array? Will Windows (SBS2003) have a hissy-fit because there are no dynamic drives? I also have the option to use Symantec System recovery but I suspect it too will try to bring over the dynamic drives.
Any pointers before I try this?
