Move P800 and Drive Array to another server

Hello guys,

Just want to ask if it's possible to move a disk array controller unit and a whole drive cage of disk array to another server without losing data? Source and destination servers are both Compaq models.

Thanks.

Yes, it is possible. This functionality is named "drive roaming". Reference the doc:
"HP Smart Array Controller technology"
