Application and Database Migration across different SAS Drive Controller Versions

Hey Guys,

 

I need to migrate my server application and database from HP Proliant ML 350 G6 to HP Proliant ML 350 Gen 9 safely without corrupting my drives and losing data. This essentially means that I would be migrating data from a system using P-420i controller to one using P-440ar controller.

 

How is it possible to do this successfully considering the data needs to migrate from one set of SAS drives (in the older server) to another (in the newer server) and each has a different version of controller.

 

Your assistance will be highly appreciated

 

Regards

Re: Application and Database Migration across different SAS Drive Controller Versions

Are you asking if you can move the drives from the old server to the new? In theory yes you can as the newer controller firmware is backwards compatible with the older firmware versions.  This issue is the drives and carriers from a G6 ProLiant will not plug into a Gen9 ProLiant.
