Hi all,

I'd bought severall PowerEdge 2950 with built in RAID 5 hardware 
controler. Unfortunatly some are PERC 5/i and some are PERC 6/i. Can I 
move a bunch of RAID 5 disks from a PERC 5/i to a PERC 6/i server and 
also from PERC 6/i to PERC 5/i ? One server is a global spare for the 

I don't know if the distributed parity RAID5 format is the same between 
both controler models.

Best regards,
