Will adding HBA break the current RAID?


Recommended Posts

Currently, I run 6.2-23739  Jun 1.03b DS3617xs smoothly on Asrock J3455.

Four hard disks form a SHR on sockets Intel1 Intel2 ASM1 ASM2.


If I plug an extra Marvell HBA (the driver is compatible) on the motherboard and add the fifth empty hard disk.

I doubt whether the the socket sequence will be intervened and it re-sorts on certain criteria. Let's say controller vendor ID/Name alphabetically?

Hence,  the RAID collapses.

Or the DSM / loader is so smart that it could mark IDs on each drive and keep the sequence correctly?


Does anyone have experience on it?
