Retrieve data from faulty system board x3650 M4 (7915)

2019-10-01, 6:59 AM

One of our x3650 M4 server reported that system board was faulty. We would like to retrieve the data from the SAS HDD.

 

Can we shutdown another x3650 M4 server1 (with the same spec of the faulty server), remove the existing 1TB SAS hard disks from the server and plug in the 300GB SAS HDDs from the faulty server and power on?

 

The details info of both servers as follows:

 

Server 1

System Board Faulty Server2

System x3650 M4 Type 7915AC1

LSI MegaRAID Controller

HDD: 3 x 1TB (FRU No: 81Y9691)

System x3650 M4 Type 7915AC1

LSI MegaRAID Controller

HDD: 3 x 300GB (FRU No: 90Y8878)

Hi KSLEE

 

You can move HDDs from faulty server to normal server. These HDDs will be recognized as foreign configuration. A foreign configuration is a RAID configuration that already exists on a replacement set of drives that you install in a computer system. You can use the LSI Storage Authority software to import the foreign configuration to the controller or clear the foreign configuration so that you can create a new configuration using these drives. Please refer more information from the LSI Storage Authority Software User Guide section 13.4 Importing or Clearing the Foreign Configurations
