Hi,
no problem to moving the two disks from first to second server. The smart array read the information into the hards disks.

Hi,
the servers must have same hardware configuration, if the configuration is different the operating system does not start

Hi,
ram is not a problem. The problem is "controller raid" "scsi controller" for other peripherals.
The most important is controller of boot disk.

No the RAM does not have to be the same. The servers do not have to be identical either. But if you have an extra adapter in one server, you will need to adjust the drivers (add or remove) in the other server.

update the firmware in the Smart Array controllers, mismatch in Smart Array firmware functions can cause problems
