530-8i to 930-8i card upgrade

Hi there,


I want to upgrade my 530-8i raid card to 930-8i to get better performance. what's the best way to do that? Do I need to backup my data or just swapping the controller will suffice ?

Hi IngLen


You can save RAID array configuration from current RAID controller, and then import to new RAID controller after switch. Please refer How to import a foreign array configuration into a ThinkSystem RAID controller for more information. We recommand to back up important data before begining any action on the crad switch.

normally the new controller should read the config from previous drives when boot. but for safe, pls backup the important data & raid config in case of need by exception.

And we're back...
