Merging three domains

By lewis_ph ·
I must reinstall the OS to bring a foreign PDC into main domain. OS is on independent drive; what happens to the hardware raid5 that is also present in the machine? Does reinstalling the OS require action to introduce the raid set to the newly installed OS? action during install? Details, if you have 'em. Thanks!

Just isntall NT on the stand alone HD. The hardware RAID will be recognised by NT as another HD and will not be touched during the installation.

Hardware raid is transperant to the OS. All the os sees is the logical drives.

CORRECTION: The OS isn't on a seperate volume; it is on the first partition of a 3-disk raid 5 volume. I'm disappointed to find this....I see this as an unsafe practice, for one, and secondly, slower to recover (compared to mirror) in the event ofdrive or controller failure. What do you think?
