I have 2 DL360 G1, can I swap the raid drives

I have two DL360 G1, one has two 1.2Ghz processors and lots of ram the other has 1 x 800Mhz and 512Mb. Both systems have 2 x 16Gb drives that are in Raid 1.

My problem is that the slow server is now getting a lot more use than the fast one and I would like the fast system to be running the OS's that are on the slow servers drives.

I was going to swap the CPUS and ram over, but the CPU heat sinks say they cannot be refitted and do not want the expense of 4 heat sinks.

Can I simply swap the hard drives from unit over to the other, will the RAID controller be able to handle it?

I do not want to lose the OSs that are on either server so want to check before I trash two working systems.

Best regards

Matt

hi ashby

are the controller the same model? I supposed that because both servers are dl360 G1

if yes of course you can do it

sometimes if they are not the same (we would need a little research about that)
