I need to restart a Dell Precision 670 server that includes a Dell 320 / DC SCSI RAID adapter.
The server was shut down for 7 years and the BIOS setup was lost.
I have 3 disks configured in RAID5 (it's written on disks), their model is seagate cheetah 10k7, the user told me that SCSI IDs have not been changed.
Is it a good idea to write-protect disks with jumpers until I find the correct BIOS configuration, or can it cause other problems?
If the disks are not write-protected, are there any risks of overwriting the RAID configuration on the disks?
The operating system is RHEL 4.x.
