Moving a RAID to another computer (Revisit)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have a raid5 array with all my music and such, my storage drives and I have never had to move them before. I am building my new IB computer tonight and I need help moving it to the new mobo without losing any data. How is this done?

Edit: Okay sorry I didn't provide more information to start with but here it is... the mobo in my sig is the old mobo. I didn't use a separate raid controller in order to create the raid. The new motherboard that I have is the UD5H so I don't think the raid controllers are the same. So my question now is, would I be able to just plug in one of the hard drives and read all my data?

are you using on board RAID or a RAID card.

I've been wondering the same thing. I think the raid controllers have to be the same for it to work...?

If the motherboard is being used you shouldnt have any problems transferring the RAID if the chipsets are the same or the in the same family. If you are using Intel's Rapid Storage Technology you also shouldnt have any issues if you're going to another board with the IRST. However, if the chipsets are completely different then you're more than likely going to have to rebuild the RAID from scratch so MAKE SURE no matter what, you back up all of your data first.

EDIT: Also make sure the chipset you are going to support the RAID type you want to transfer.

if it's a different chipset/raid config then you're not going to be able to transfer the drives with the data intact.
you will have to boot the pc that currently has your raid setup, copy off all the data first, then move the drives, create the new array on the new board, then move all your data back. In raid 5 a single drive does not hold all your info, plus it wouldn't be readable as a single drive.

I did the exact same thing awhile back. I went from a DDR2 setup to a DDR3. Both were Nvidia RAID0 and it worked perfectly.
They have to be the same family of controllers
Intel RST will work with any version of Intel RST.
