RAID 1 failed motherboard

I have a server with Intel S2600CW setup with RAID 1 on the motherboard.  I have an identical replacement MB coming in today.  If I go into the BIOS and setup RAID 1 just like the old MB will everything boot and the RAID 1 continue to work correctly with nothing lost?  OR??  OS is Linux.  Thanks, Lew

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The RAID information should be saved on the drives so when you migrate them over to the new system it should understand that they belong to a RAID set. On boot of the new server i would go into the BIOS and Raid configuration to confirm that they are showing up correct.

If they are not showing correct post a screen grab and we will be able to help out more

GREAT!  Thanks for your quick response.  Will let you know more as soon as the MB arrives.  Either success or I need help.  Again, Thanks, Lew

It should be bootable even if you connect a single drive because the RAID1 is used. Thus try first to boot with a single HDD connected and RAID enabled in BIOS.

Connect new MB.  Went to BIOS and enabled RAID.  Boot to MB RAID controller.  All drives appeared and were in a correctly working RAID 1.  Booted and everything worked correctly.  Did not need to rebuild RAID or have any issues.  Thanks, Lew
