MD 1000

This question is not answered

Where is the RAID config stored? On the disks or the controller? We have a project where it would be great if we could move a MD1000 to a new server with an equal controller as in the old server. Is this possible?

  • Hello hypervfan,

    The RAID configuration is stored on the controller in the MD1000.  Since you are going to be moving the MD1000 it is best to move the old controller as well.  As you stated that you have a newer controller that is equal to the old which should be good & have no issues but sometimes if the controllers are different then you will run into some issues.  

    Please let us know if you have any other questions or issues.
