MSA20 move to another MSA1500 or DL140

Hello!

What is the preferred way to move the MSA20 box to the another MSA1500 controller?

Now it's working in a MSA1500 system, which contain two RAID5 volume (one is failed - one disk missing) and one RAID0.

Will the configuration (volumes) be recognized on the another MSA1500 system?

Second question:

Is it possible to connect the MSA20 to the DL140 server (with StorageWorks 642)? Will the array controller recognize the volumes? I saw only 12 RAID0 volumes in the boot ACU(F8), Is there any other opportunity for this?

Thx,
Istvan

Going from 1500 to 1500 should work fine.

1500 -> Direct, Direct -> 1500, will not work.

Thx.
And what is the preferred method to remove the MSA20? I reconnect it, and the MSA1500 said "Missing Volumes" after boot. But the MSA30 arrays work fine.

Unfortunatelly I can't use the ACU, because said: "ERROR DETECTED The controller has an invalid configuration in witch overlapping logical drives exist."

I move this tread to Storage\SAN.
