  • Riser Card with PCI-e replacment

    I have a Dell PE2850 with 5 drives in it with a "R5601 Card, Controller, Adapter, 39160, FW3.10, U160M" located on a PCI-x port. The server came with a Riser card which has 3 PCI-x ports. We are trying to get a new Riser card (Dell model KJ880) to get PCI-e slots available to attach some external disk arrays.
    Q: If I replace the riser card, am I going to loose all the data on the RAID5 disks? Where does the scsi controller physically sits in this
    server?

    Thanks in advance
Working...
