Smart Array 5300 Upgrade to SA-6404

Have a couple servers with SA-5300 cards installed that are connected to 3 different drive array shelves. The SA-5300 are starting to show there age and need to be replaced. The replacement cards I have available are the SA-6404.

When I attempt to replace the 5300 with the 6404 the 6404 does not find the 3rd drive shelf. The 6404 is actually 2 controllers on the same card, each controller controlling 2 of the 4 ports. The 5300 had one controller controlling all 4 ports.

Anyone know of a document spelling out how to do this type of migration? Or even know how to do it?
