Hi all,

Pretty straight forward question -

If my server dies (Server 2008R2), can I simply plug my DAS [Dell PowerEdge1200 DAS Storage]  into a newly created server [with host controller] and expect my flat file data storage to be visible ?

Also, if the new server is domain joined, what will the resulting folder / file permissions be ?  Will permissions need to be reconfigured ?

If the controller is non-RAID and doesn't use metadata ... yes.

Can anyone else confirm ?

Will it be visible ?  What will the resulting file / folder permissions be retained ?

Permissions assigned to domain users /groups will remain. Permissions assigned to default local users and groups (ie. Local Administrators) will still be fine. Anything related to a local user on the original server would show the SID but wouldn't map to a user or group. I recommend to always only add permissions to domain groups.

Thanks Kevinhsieh.

Dlethe or anyone RE: the controller -

If the controller is OK would I be able to install the card on the new server ?

If the controller was a the same model REPLACEMENT from Dell, do you believe the RAID partition would be accessible / intact on the new server ?
