Can old drives be used for backup?

Currently I have a DL380 G4 with 72.8 GB hard drives. I would like to upgrade to 300GB drives. The RAID in both machines will be the same. The differences will be the drive size and the new drives will have VM on it and then the original server setup as a VM.

My question is, if everything fails and I need to resort back to the 72.8GB drives either now or in the future, will I be able to just pull the 300GB out and put the 72.8GB in each slot and have it work or will the configuration for the 300GB make the 72.8 not work anymore?

HP RAID configs are stored in the smart array controller AND on the hard drives, for redundancy. You can recover your old array on the same server by plugging all the drives back in to the exact same slots.

Make sure to label the drives with their slot ids so that you can put them back in their original slots.

Should you ever have to do this recovery, before you do so remove ALL hard drives and run the HP system erase from the smart start cd. This will erase the array configuration on the smart array controller. After it's done, turn the server off and insert the old drives, the power it back on. Your old array configuration will be read off the 72 gb drives and you're set.
