  • If you configured RAID 1 with hardware, the OS should see only one drive.  To test safely, power off the system and pull one drive.   Boot the OS and power off again.  Plug the one drive back in and it should resync before even booting the OS.  H/W RAID configs should be completely OS-independent...
