PowerEdge730 Switch PERC H730 Mini back to Raid withou data loss

I had a degraded Virtual Disk with Raid 1.

Than both Hdd were removed from the system (dont ask why :-))

The good HDD was put back in the system . The Auto Import Foreign Configuration.was activated and the system starts normally.

Now I can see in openmanage that the Per H730 Mini is in HBA mode

The firmware is 25.4.0.0017

The hdd  is in non raid now.

How can I get back to the raid 1 configuration without loosing my data?

Hi, 
"The Auto Import Foreign Configuration.was activated and the system starts normally." ->it would be great to take a look your current RAID configuration. Can you attach some screenshots?
Regardless, because of this "Now I can see in openmanage that the Per H730 Mini is in HBA mode" -> you are going to lose data. When changing from HBA mode to RAID mode, the data loss is inevitable.

Yes, I can confirm based on the screenshots you attached, you are on HBA mode hence, if you wish to do what you want, you can't escape data loss. Sorry I can't be of much help this time. Let us know if you have any further questions.
