HDD change on server

Recently we have upgraded our hotel maintenance software, which uses databases and is running on Debian. We bought a HP ProLiant ML 110 G5 server for running the softwares. We experienced very slow speed on the network but after several tests, the result was that either the server or the software is the cause. We think that the software is the cause, but the provider of the software thinks it is the other way around. There is also HDD mirroring.


We have a same server except for memory. Our suggestion was that we move the two HDDs from the allegedly faulty server to the other one and than test the older server. But the provider of the software told us that this is not possible, since after moving the HDDs the mirroring might go bad and if the OS does not recognize the new hardware the OS could be damaged and than we will not be able to run the software.


We were wondering whether this is a plausible scenario?


Thanks for any hints.
