I have a server with a failed motherbord.
The motherboard has an embeeded Adaptec RAID controler.
The server has 3 SCSI disks in a software RAID5 array (so the RAID controller is used only as a SCSI controler, not RAID).
I want to connect the 3 disks on another machine with an Adaptec RAID controler (I only have this machine available).
Usually, when we use a RAID controler, we have to initialise the disks. So the data will be erased. Even if we only want direct access to the disks.
Is there a way to use a RAID controler without any disk initiation ? I think this heavily depend on the manufacturer, firmware, etc.
