Proliant DL series HDD issue

I have 1 x DL380G5 (production) with 8 x 146GB (2 mirrored for OS & 6 formed RAID5 for data) and I have 1 x DL380G5 for cold standby (2 x 146GB mirrored for OS).

Once production failure, can I remove 6 (RAID 5) disks to cold standby and up and running? Do I need to re-configure RAID 5 in cold standby server or before?

Based on the fact that DRIVE ROAMING feature of the HDD DOES allow this(provided the controller has the same configuration); make sure the DATA is well backed up... just in case !
