Can I build RAID spread over several disk controllers ?

Yes – however since the transfer will run over PCIe BUS and depends on the motherboard quality it is highly recommended to test this configuration first before using it in production environment.

What happens with data if I reinstall euroNAS from scratch ?

euroNAS Premium Products

New installation will automatically import RAID, shares and iSCSI / FC Targets

Cluster Products

After reinstall – select option “join cluster” – the wizard will automatically pull settings from the functioning node and import drives.

How can I replace failed drive on software raid?

If the drive fails in a redundant raid array (Raid 1, 5 or 6) just go under Software Raid - Raid Info and select option repair and follow the wizzard.

Alternatevly you can replace it by defining the replacement drive as hot spare in the software raid management. Rebuild will then start automatically.
