[QUERY] Restore RAID configuration onto another Qnap

Post by coolyota » Thu Feb 14, 2008 1:08 pm

Hi all,

I have just recently bought QNap 409 and out of interest if device (hardware) fails. Is it possible to buy another Qnap 409, take HD out of the "old" Qnap and plug in to the new Qnap 409 and restore RAID configuration keeping data?

Thanks
Model: QNap 409
Config: Raid 5
HD: 4x WD 500GB HD
Network: 1GB switch

Yes. Remember the HDD must be inserted in the same order as they're in the old NAS.
