Hi. I have an older HP ProLiant server and have a quick question about RAID.
The server has 8 hard drives.
The first 2 were used for a RAID1 setup and that's where the OS was installed (Server 2008 R2).
The other 6 drives were setup in a RAID10 config and housed a COPY of the company's data.
I decided to replace the first 2 drives with SSDs and was thinking that the other 6 drives would still be accessible after the OS was reinstalled on the 2 x SSDs.
I noticed when I initially booted into the RAID setup, I saw a message stating that some drives and configs were removed and such.
It's not a HUGE deal to recreate the RAID10 config on the other 6 drives and copy all of the company data again, but it is very time-consuming.
Just wondering if I have any options before I recreate the RAID10 config and copy everything all over again.
Thanks in advance.
