DL380G3 change from Simplex to Duplex

I would like to check our SCSI drive configuration from Simplex (0,1,2,3,4,5) to Duplex (0,1) and (2,3,4,5). Would like to check if I need to rebuild the drive on slot 2,3,4,5 (Raid 5) or not when I made that change. Thanks for your help. KL

I have RAID 1 for SCSI (0,1), RAID 5 for SCSI (2,3,4,5). The SCSI port controller (2,3,4,5) was incorrectly connected to the back panel and configure as Simplex, and I want to switch the cable direct to the motherboard, put the duplex terminator onto the back panel to change it into Duplex. KL

It should be no problem.
The raid-configuration is written on the disks-members of the raidset.
You can swap disks between drive bays without a problem, even mixed between two ports of the controller.
