Does create logical drive on a Smart Array P400 erase existing data?

I have a disk that was from a RAID1 set on a IBM server. It's currently plugged in a HP server in order for me to read the data. Since P400 does not have JBOD feature, I am wondering if I just need to create a logical drive (e.g. RAID0) in order for the OS to recognize it.

Thank you!


This will not work.

What are you expecting this to do? The IBM controller and the HP Smart Array controller have different on-disk RAID formats. As there is no passthrough or JBOD mode available on the HP controller, creating any logical drive, even a RAID0, will delete the existing data on the drive.
