This might sound like an odd question, but I have a Dell Precision with a PERC6i Internal PCIe SAS RAID Controller. I currently have 4 SAS drives attached in a RAID5 configuration. Now I want to temporarily safely remove this Hardware RAID configuration, e.g. pull out the PCIe Card en Drives, put them in a box and put them back in the computer a few months later. The reason for this is that the PC will be used for something entirely else for a couple of months and we don't want the data on the RAID to be compromised.
Will it work if I just pull out the drives and PCIe card and label the drives and cable? Can I put it back after a couple of months without problems? Ofcourse I will make backups, but I just want to save the hassle of configuring a RAID and restoring backups.
Linux noob willing to learn.
