Importing or Deleting a Foreign Configuration

Importing or Deleting a Foreign Configuration


  • After replacing a RAID controller card, import the original configuration to the new RAID controller card.
  • If a hard drive newly installed on a server already has a RAID configuration that the user needs or does not need, you can import or delete the configuration.
  • If you replace a RAID controller card when a RAID array has been configured on the server, the RAID configuration will be considered as Foreign Config. If you clear a foreign configuration, the RAID configuration will be lost. Exercise caution when performing this operation.
  • 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.

  2. View foreign configurations.
