Array card - changing from a Smart HBA H240ar to an HPE Flexible Smart Array P440ar/2GB

I have been tasking with replacing an HBA H240AR array card in a DL380 Gen9 server to a P440.

The server currently has a RAID 10 setup with a spare, and the server is running VMWare 6 from an SD card.

I have been told I can just replace the card as the RAID set is stored on the drives. and the new card will pick up the RAID set.

In the quickspecs of the H240AR it states "seamless updates to other HPE Smart Array P-Series controllers", so this leads me to think the above is correct.

Does anyone have any experince or input on this upcoming change?

Install the new controller and connect the cables, this should work.

Hope this helps!
