Migrate Disk RAID 5 from ML350 G10 to a ML350 G9

HI, I need your help with the following:

I have an HP Proliant ML350 G10 with motherboard failure, with a raid 5 (Principal server)
I also have an HP Proliant ML350 G9 in reserve.

I want to know if there is any way to migrate the disks from the ML350 G10 to the ML350 G9 and be able to recover the data

It's pretty easy to move an array from older generation to a newer generation server, but going the other way may not work. If the Gen9 server has the latest firmware updates for the Smart Array there is a chance the Gen9 server will recognise the Gen10 array, but it isn't a scenario that is tested. There could be features in newer controller that the Gen9 controller may not be able to handle. If you don't have a good backup, I'd wait for the replacmenet systemboard
