Moving FC10 disks to VA7100

We have a client who wants to do this and I'm not sure if they can.
They have two FC10's, each with five 36GB drives.
They want to move those ten drives to an empty VA7100.
Has any one ever done this? Are there any gotcha's with this?

Thanks.
Dave

Re: Moving FC10 disks to VA7100

This won't be possible, at least the disk chassis won't fit into the VA. The FC10 disk is more wide than the VA disk.
Also I guess the disks are different models with different firmware. So the answer is NO - impossible.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Dave,

This is NOT possible.

These disks are physically not the same.

I've received confirmation from HP on what you have all been saying. No, it will not work.
Thanks very much for your replies.
