My client has a Dell PowerEdge R310 with a SAS6/IR controller and 2 1-TB SATA drives in RAID 1 configuration. The server has failed (probably motherboard and controller). We are waiting for Dell support to come out to repair it but it may not be timely enough.
The client has asked the question: can we move the RAID1 drives (both or just one) to another hardware platform and bring it up there? In theory, I think this can be done but I really don't know and don't want to try it without a little more knowledge.
So, can this be done? Does the target hardware need to be the same make? Same mode? Same whatever? Can I just move one of the drives - not both? Can it be the secondary drive and put it into the primary spot on the new server?
