Working with a Dell Poweredge 840 running in Raid 1. The controller card failed and in order to keep running I pulled the card out and just connected one of the drives to sata port 3 directly on the mother board. It wasn't pretty but it worked after some bios configurations. Now the new card is here and I have to install it. Do I have to install drivers for the card and how do I rebuild the array since one of the drives has been running with out the other one for 5 days now.
This is the replacement card here, http://www.scsi4me.com/dell-perc-6-i-integrated-sas-raid-controller-card.html
