How can I replace Intel S1200bt motherboard, and copy and reinstall all Raid 5 data to new S1200bt motherboard?
Posted on 2014-12-12
Client has a Server 2012 OS on a Intel S1200BT motherboard with onboard Raid 5, (3) 1TB sata drives. Server is acting as workgroup server only, no AD, no Exchange. Been having numerous issues with Raid over a years time saying a drive has failed. Drive is replaced on that port number and it takes 4 days to rebuild the raid. I have tested the drive, and it is perfectly fine. I have changed 4 drives so far, and on all ports 0, 1, and 2. All the drives have been tested good, so it has to be an issue with the raid system on the board.
I got the OEM builder to get me another Intel S1200BT. I need to replace the existing board, but first image the existing system to external drive, replace the board, and image back to new motherboard. I am trying not to loose anything.
I need to know an efficient way of doing all this, over a Saturday, so everything will be back up and running as it was before. After the motherboard is swapped, I will make another raid 5, same as it is now, with the same drives. The motherboards are identical, same models. I will move the processor and ram over to new unit.
Any help is appreciated.
