SAS Adapter Failure on Windows 2008 Server - HP DL380 G7

MOPUser asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
We experienced a SAS Adpater Failure on a Windows 2008 server with 4 logical drives configured.

Logical Drive 0 is the OS. We have ordered a replacement card from HP.

What steps do we need to follow to ensure that we do not lose data once we replace the card?

The data we are really concerned about is on the other logical drives.

Also, is it possible to move the two drives for the OS to another DL380 G7 with a different controller and build from there?

Any comments would be appreciated
