Replacing Hp Array Controller while Retaining Data and RAID
Posted on 2013-06-13
I have a Proliant ML350 G3 and i need to replace the array controller because the battery died. Currently I have a RAID 5 array. The new array controller is nearly identical to the factory one. The current array controller is a Smart Array 5302 Controller with 128MB Cache...the replacement that will be going in is a Smart Array 5302 Controller with 64MB Cache
Assuming that the RAID configuration is store in BIOS or on the drives themselves..will i be able to swap out the array controller and boot back up to windows 2003?
please help soonest,
