  • Removing then ROM deleting logical drive then Reinstalling

    On an HP380 DL under ROM configuration for arrays we can deleete a logical drive which has been removed from the system for whatever reason.

    If the logical drive is deleted and then the subject physical drive reinstalled, will a simple creation of a logical drive in ROM configuration selecting that drive allow it's contents to continue to be used?

    No problem with the drive caused it's removal I just didnt want it interfering with other activity. On the one hand it still interfers while a removed drive however until deleted and on the other when deleted it wouldn't operate until being created logically (I am just hoping not to lose data.)

    Regards

    PS hope that isnt too convoluted. I know there is an easy way to find out but an answer beforehand would let me choose which one I lose data on. Thanks.

    I hope I undersood your question right
    IIRC, the answer is NO. When you'll create on the physical drive the new logical drive, all the drive's contents will be lost.

      Thank you Sorin. Moving data, a re-creation then a reinstall is the way to go then.

      Now all that is done and it didn't turn out as big a deal as I thought it may.
