Lenovo TS430 server upgrade with RAID 700 adapter
Posted on 2014-10-07
I have a Lenovo TS430 server with on-board LSI RAID and four mirrored drives, two for boot, two for data. The IO performance of the disk is low, so I want to upgarde to Lenovo ThinkServer RAID 700 adapter, which is, from what I understand is another repackaged LSI board, put another set of disks, and build the RAID. Did anybody try to do something like this? I am afraid that there will be some incompatibility between the on-board and add-on RAID adapters.
