Move Array from one 380 G4 to another 380 G4

Move Array from one 380 G4 to another 380 G4

I have 2 identical DL 380 G4 servers. One in Production and One not in Production. THe server in production has 2 Logical drives that are RAID 1+0. C drive (OS) and D drive Data.
I want to move my production arrays into the non production server. Both systems are using the 6i controller. Can I simply shutdown both servers and swap the drives in their original order, then power up the servers? Will the system recogniz my arrays? Will my OS (Windows 2003 Enterprise SP1) boot?

Or, shoould I split the mirror, leaving one mirror on my prod server and move the other mirror to the new server and bring it up?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

HI,

you don´t worry.
1.You put in disk the same order that server production in the no production.
2. Turn on Server no production and show Screen message the configuration array you press F2.
(The information array configuration is over disk, with F2 saved configuration the disk over controller Array)
3. You Server no production Turn on without problem.

You are luck!!!!

That's what I did and it worked great! Of course I had made a good backup prior to doing the move.

Thanks for the info!
