[Q] Any tips for moving from a Sata card to an LSI card? (2 disks on SATA card ATM)

Recommended Posts

Hey All,

I have finally bitten the bullet and grabbed an LSI card.

The final straw has been some errors popping up within unraid console that appears to hamper the drives from mounting properly some boots.

I know I should have grabbed one before I started but here I am.


I have a 2 port sata card with 2 drives installed on it.

I will be moving to a LSI SAS HBA (IT Mode) card which has 2 ports and 2x4way splitter cables.


My question is - Is there any tips for moving across from the sata card to the LSI card?


Is it possible to yank the disks, put the card in, replug and away I go?

The alternative is do the above and rely on the dual parity to get me back to where I was?
