Cloning Proliant W2K Servers

Hello.
I am building 6 new servers using RAID 1 and would like to clone them by breaking the mirror on one system and using one of the drives to build a second system. Can this be done? I am using Microsoft's SYSPREP utility to insure the OS has unique SIDs. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Cloning Proliant W2K Servers

I actually answered my own question. The answer is "Yes"! The thing you have to be sure of is to put the disk you are building the new system with in the same drive position it was in the source system. I didn't do this at first and got a message during boot that the drives were out of order and could not boot to the hard drive. I switched the disks and everything was fine.
