lost order of 4 Hds

the 4 HDs were taken out of a T310 w/o noting their order. We have no reason to think there is corruption. Now we need to put them back in ! Ugh. Any way to figure out the order ? Or lacking that is trying different combinations going to endanger our data ?

 

Thanks,

Denis

Re: lost order of 4 Hds

Hi Denis,

 

the volume information is stored not just in the controller but also on the hard drive - there should be no mismatch regardless of how you put the drives in.

 

Where there any other configurations on this controller yet? If so, you have to import the foreign config after powering on. This will restore the VD(s) like they were before pulling them out.
