I have a customer who had a server disaster a couple months back, at the time the most readily available hardware was a ML350G4 that I had just purchased for my lab environment. We used the lab server to restore their environment. Fast forward to today... We just purchased them an identical ML350G4 and are ready to migrate them to their own hardware. A couple years ago I did this on a DL380 simply by moving the harddrives\array controller to the other server.

Has anyone had more recent experience and can confirm that this will still work today?

Thanks.
