Move W2k3 System


I want to move a windows 2003 system from an DL380G2 (Raid Controller 5i) to an DL380G5 (P400 Raidcontroller). I want to take an image from the old installation and install it on the new hardware. Problem is the device driver for the RaidController. Is it possible to install the P400 driver onto the old system, so after image move, the system on the new server will know that driver and starts without any problem? (The P400 controller is onboard and I have no P400 PCI device)

Re: Move W2k3 System

There is software that will assist you with this type of move. HP Server Migration Pack

There are limitation to the software. Reportedly, you can only use it to migrate to a most recent server model. I.E. G2 to G5, not G2 to G4.
