Minegrating to new server

MojangYang

Hi guys. I am trying to to move my minecraft game and os to a different server, with different raid controller. Any tips? I have 4 10k sas hdds in 2 raid 1 arrays. One dedicated for the game, the other for the os. I was thinking of deleting the arrays on the old server, putting the drives in the new server and recreate two raid 1 arrays on the new server. Will it work?

I'm pretty sure if you delete the arrays, you will lose all data. At least that's how it works on my HP server.

I also have a hp server. Dl385 g6. How can I make the server forget that there ever was an array without loosing anything?

Well, If I remember correctly, deleting the array itself is not the issue, but rather creating a new one with the same drives, as it will delete everything when doing so. I'm by no means an expert, though. It's best to do your own research. I followed the post so I can see if anyone has more input.
