replace 10GB adapter with 1GB adapter on Prolaint


I am getting a Proliant server from someone that has a 2-port 10GB adapter. We don't have 10GB switches so I was hoping I could just swap out the 2-port 10GB adapter with a 4-port 1GB adapter. The 4-port adapter will be for iSCSI and LAN traffic. I am adding another 4-port 1GB adapter as well so I will have (2) 4-port 1GB adapters if I can replace the 10GB.

It will be an ESXi host connected to the LAN and SANs.

Can this be done?
