How do I reseat/swap/add a RAID controller?

 

 

Promax Areca RAID Controller Hardware Swap Lower Bitrate

 

1. The server must be powered off and the internals must be easily accessible by removing cover.

2. Locate the RAID controller in the server

3. There will be a Philips screw holding the card into the slot in the back that will need to be removed to release the card. 

4. Reseat all connections including the card itself.  If you are swapping cards, ensure that connections are documented so they will go in the same order.

5. Once all is reseated and all connections are confirmed, reconstruct server, reinstall, and power on.
