I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes, you can replace it without problem as long as the replacement controller has no configuration stored on it. If it is second hand controller then remove all disks, replace controller, go into the config program and erase the config then power off and fit the disks.

This is covered in the user guide under section 2.4.7 Drive Migration. Can't copy it as it's copy protected PDF.
Google for "this is called drive migration" and you'll find the manual easily enough.
