Relocating nic cards

I have a recently decommissioned rp7440 and I would like to remove its nic cards and use them on a DR server, also an rp7440. Physically, would there be any issues involved like nic cards having unique wwn?

As long as you are moving the cards between the same model servers there should be no problems whatsoever.

Hi Frederick,

A NIC doesn't have any WWN, unless it is a combo card. Other than that, AFAIK the chassis of a machine mustn't be opened by the customer, only a certified HP engineer should touch the inner parts. Otherwise your warranty voids. (Ok, for a 20-year old D-class it would be ok to replace/insert the hardware.)
