I have a Dell R710 server running Server 2008 32 bit. I want to do a clean install of Server 2012 on it.
It has 2 drives for the operating system in RAID 1 and 4 drives in RAID 5 for data.
When I boot from the 2012 DVD will it see the C drive?
The c drive shows 136GB of total space. Will that be enough space for Server 2012 Standard?
Will I lose the RAID set up during the 2012 install or does the PERC controller keep the array intact? Not the data just the RAID?
I know I will lose the data on the operating system drives when I do the 2012 install. How about the data on the RAID 5 array will I have access to that after installing Server 2012?
Any help is appreciated.
