As long as you're using the same type of SCSI between these machines, all you should need to do is plug in (and hope all is OK - this *shouldn't* be plug and play, but it'll probably work) and rescan the hardware.

As for other changes, it depends what you're trying to do in the first place. Automated backups destined for the other machine will now need to be directed to this one, as will any remote data.
A sysadmin should never cross his fingers in the hope commands will work. Makes for a lot of mistakes while typing.
