2 x DL380 G3 Servers - Swap Hard Drives
Posted on 2006-06-24
1 x DL380 G3 Server With SBS 2003 Premium Raid 5 configured on a 6400 Controller.
1 x DL380 G3 Server (Identical Hardware) With Server 2003 Standard
SBS server is failing to get past the POST stage. We have contacted HP and a technician will be calling midday on Monday of next week.
My question is, our SBS server is more critical and would it be possible to simply switch the drives between the failing SBS server and the 2003 Standard server to allow our users to start work first thing on Monday morning? Are there any considerations? MAC address of Network Cards etc.
