Upgrading 3200

I am going to take the drives from one ML530 with only the one drive cage and put the drives in another ML530 with the two drive bays. The new 530 has a SMART array 5300 and the old one has a 3200. I was trying to find any info on the support site on upgrading from the 3200 to 5300, but could only find info on upgrading to the 4200. Does anyone have any info on upgrading to the 5300 from the 3200? Does anyone see any problem on upgrading servers? I don't see any problems since they are the samee model but maybe someone has already tried this.

Re: Upgrading 3200

Hi,
I guess you want to keep the data on these drives, Its not possible then. There are to many differences between these model. And the 3200 and the 5300 array controller does not use the same driver; the 3200 uses the cpqarray.sys and the 5300 uses the cpqcisse.sys.
