Hi there, 

I'm curious if it's possible to remove the physical disks from an operable Pegasus R6 enclosure set up as RAID5, and install them in a Pegasus2 R6 enclosure, without loss of functionality / data.

I have freely transferred raid sets from Pegasus to Pegasus enclosures, and everything has been fine, but hesitate to move them in to a Pegasus2 enclosure without knowing if it'll cause any issues. 

My scenario is this: I have a dead Pegasus enclosure, and have found a used Pegasus2 enclosure for sale locally to replace it.

 

Thanks in advance if you can help!

Hi Greg,

Yes. It can be possible use the drives into Pegasus2 R6. Please follow the below mentioned steps.

- Power off the Pegasus2 R6 unit.

- Insert all the drives into the respective slot (Do not mismatch the order).

- Power on the unit and check the volume access.

Please try and let us know the status. Thank you.

Hey again,

 

Thanks for the information. I'm just writing back to say the transfer of the drives / raid set from Pegasus R6 to Pegasus2 R6 enclosure went perfectly. 

 

Cheers,

Greg

I also have a Pegasus1 enclusre that is dying. It has falied the same drive (#5) twice in a week, and is now stuck at 21% of rebuilding. I was thinking of picking up an inexpensive Pegasus2 enclosure to see if the drive will rebuild correctly in the new enclosure. Any advice would be appreciated.
