RAID Controller Card Repalcement

By emilhogen ·
I think that my Adaptec 2120S RAID controller card is defective in my server, which has 5 drives with data and OS on them.
If I replace the controller card, will I lose the RAID setup?
Will the new card be able to read the RAID setup from the drives?
Will I risk losing the RAID data?

Assuming you're replacing with a like card, all will be fine. The replacement card will read the configuration from the drives redundant information sector (RIS) and will learn the RAID setup.

If not replacing with the same model card, call Adaptec Support to confirm compatibility before installing the replacement card.
