Hello.

I donated a server to a non profit 7 years ago.  It ran very well until yesterday when it didn't boot due to a "PCIe Training Error:  Slot 1  System Halted"

After trial and error and research, I determined that the UCS-51 5/iR Raid adapter was dead.

I was able to find one on PC Liquidators. I'm going to install it later today, but I was curious if I had to rebuild the array (2 drive mirrored system).  I've mainly worked with SCSI drive arrays in the past.

Will the mirrored configuration be lost when I install the new replacement adapter?

Thanks!
