I have a dell Perc 6/i raid card that i would like to use in a raid 5 array. What happens if the hard drives are fine, but the perc 6/i fails? If i replace it with another perc 6/i will the raid array recover and the data be fine/accessible? What if i get another raid controller that is not a perc 6/i because the model is no longer available for a reasonable price?
Just curious what my long term strategy will be in the event of a failure. thanks!
