Move disk array to new server

Is it possible to move a disk array from one server to another?
System is Smart Array 3200 with external UE storage system(RAID 5)

Re: Move disk array to new server

If you are moving the Smart Array 3200 as well, it should easy as pie.

If you not..., it shold still be easy as pie. (as long as your still using some Smart Array controller)

This array does not hold your system partition I presume? If so, you may have some issues with drives and such if the servers are different, but should have no issues if the servers are the same.

Re: Move disk array to new server

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I'll be moving the array controller too, but its a different proliant (2500).
