Importing Foreign Configurations

Importing Foreign Configurations


  • A newly installed hard drive may already have a storage configuration (considered as foreign configuration). You can import the foreign configuration to the controller card on the Configuration Utility.
  • After replacing a RAID controller card on a server, perform this operation to import the original configuration information to the new RAID controller card.
  • To restore a RAID array after a member drive is hot swapped, set the drive to UGOOD and import the foreign configuration.
  • If the number of faulty or missing hard disks exceeds the maximum number allowed by the RAID group, the RAID group cannot be imported.
  • To avoid configuration import failure, replace the original RAID controller card with a new card of the same type.
