I have (what I assume) will be a relatively simple question.
I have an old file server that I've decommissioned and replaced. I would like to re-use the hardware from the old file server at our satellite office for offsite backup storage. Because I'm paranoid I would like to keep the data on these disks (despite the fact it's all been migrated and we have backups of the server). To that end, I would like to take the 3 hard drives out (server was running a RAID 5) and put 3 new ones in and install the OS and configure from scratch.
Assuming the hard drives are clearly labelled as drive 0, 1, 2, can they safely be transferred into another server with a different RAID card running RAID 5 (with the drives installed in the same order they were on the old server)? In short, is that data safe?
