Migrate from DL380 G2 to G4

I want to migrate all disks in a DL380G2 to a G4. The G2 has a PCI 5300 controller for the OS and data drives, and a 6400 controller for some more data drives. The question is: can the OS/data drives on the 5300 migrate to the integrated 6i controller on the G4? I will transfer the 6400 PCI controller and drives from the G2 to the G4...

Are there any things I need to do? Can I simply take the drives out of the G2 and put them into the G4 and turn it on?

Thanks in advance for any helpful suggestions!
