Moving one SAS hdd from one G7 server to another G7 server for mirroring

I have a perfectly working(with OS+application)  Dl360G7(A) server with hardware raid 0+1 mirroring and I have another Dl360G7(B)with the same hardware specification.I would like my second DL360G7(B) to be running exactly the same thing as what my first DL360G7(A) running. Can I removed one of  my second Dl360G7(B) SAS hdd and replaced with one of my SAS hdd from my first DL360G7(A) boot it up and auto mirror it on the second hdd.

Hi, HP have a white paper about this, it's called "Breaking mirrors and rebuilding drives".

Because the array information is stored in both the controller and on the disks the controller in the replica server will see what kind of array is on the disk.
