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!
Chances are yes. The RAID configuration is stored on both the controller and the drives, so if the controller dies, you will simply replace the controller, Import the Foreign Configuration in the CTRL-R
