can i shut a server down with a raid 5 rebuilding

Hi, I've brought a server home to sort out a raid issue and backup data.
My raid issue5 had a2 drives intact, I've added a 3rd drive. And the rebuild has kicked in.

Can i turn the server off whilst it's at a few percent and take it back to the office or do i need to let it finish

It's a dell t300 with a perc  6 card

Yes, the PERC is smart enough to know where it left off, and it will continue when it is turned back on.

As long as you do a proper shutdown through the O/S and not just cut power.
