i want to clone the OS (MS SBS2011 Standard) on my Primergy TX1330 M1, currently a Raid5 - 3 SATA-HDD System onto a single SSD. Raid Controller is a SAS 6G 5/6 512MB (D2616).
Later, the Raid5 shall be used to swap the Exchange DBs to and to store other data.
My Plan is to connect the SSD to the Onboard SATA-Controller, use Acronis to make an Image to an USB-HDD and play this back onto the SSD.
Problems, which I am afraid to encounter are:
Will Acronis be able to backup the whole Raid5 or will it see the 3 drives as single ones?
If i can manage the Cloning - how can I get the System to boot regularly from the SSD - there will still be the Drivers and Configuration to boot from the Raid-System. This will not work with the SSD, how can i solve this Problem?
And there might be more Troubles i cannot see yet...
I would be very thankful for every helpful support you could give me.
Sorry, if my english sounds funny, please ask everything which might help to make things clear.
Thanks a lot, Kerk
