Migrate disks from HP Proliant ML350 G5 to ML350 G6
Posted on 2011-10-13
We have a client running on an HP ML350 G5 server which is out of warranty and is rebooting around every 4 days or so, sometimes more frequently - we've checked the obvious (swapped RAM, tried removing one then other of the processors, re-seated all components and checked physical environment) and we now suspect the motherboard. Given the server is out of warranty, and was scheduled for upgrade anyway, we're looking at migrating to a new ML350 G6 server. The current setup has 2 2-disk RAID1 SAS arrays, on an HP E200i controller - can we simply move these arrays to the P410i controller in the G6 and have them detected correctly? And are there any other significant hardware differences that are likely to stop the server just being able to boot to the existing install if we do move the disks over? The server's running SBS2008.
