Recover RAID on dissimilar hardware
Posted on 2012-03-22
I have a Dell Poweredge 2600 that just had it's system board bite the dust. I'd like to just order a new server and pull the data off the hard drives. Unfortunately, I don't have another PE2600 with a PERC4/Di laying around. I had 2 RAID 5 Arrays with 3 disks each. Is it possible to attach them to another RAID controller to pull the data? I've got an Adaptec 2100S that I could potentially use or would I be better off trying to find a new Mainboard or a PERC4/DC or PERC4/SC?
