Upgrading from Perc 6ir to H200

    • Upgrading from Perc 6ir to H200

      Hello Everyone,

      I recently flashed a Perc6iR to IT mode and installed a couple drives in raid0. I just purchased an H200 and will be flashing that to IT mode and swapping out the Perc6iR on my R710. My question is, will I be able to swap the cards without having to do any changes to OMV or my raid array, etc?

      Thanks,

      Wei
    • If you were using the cards for raid, no. But since you are basically using the card as a sata/sas card and software raid, OMV won't even notice. Turn it off, swap cards, turn it on. Everything should just boot. I have done this with other types of raid cards before.

    • Hi,

      I was able to get the dell Perc H200 flashed to IT mode and booted OMV back up. But now my raid is gone. Under file systems I have a line with status MISSING. Under raid management there is nothing.

      fdisk sees the two drives:

      Disk /dev/sdb: 2000.4 GB, 2000398934016 bytes
      256 heads, 63 sectors/track, 242251 cylinders, total 3907029168 sectors

      But blkid doesnt:

      /dev/sda1: UUID="d79f18d1-73f5-402d-9708-6f3a46c09681" TYPE="ext4"
      /dev/sda5: UUID="b8c0b349-48b3-4137-9b3f-622edf7efccf" TYPE="swap"
      /dev/sr0: LABEL="OpenMediaVault" TYPE="iso9660"

      Am I pretty much screwed at this point? I didn't make a backup as I was hoping this would be a swap without any issues (that is my fault). Is there anything I can try to recover this? This was a straight raid0 setup.

      Thanks,
