I have a customer with an old NW6 server. He does not want to upgrade his
software because his application works perfectly and extremely reliabably.
However, the server it runs on was purchased in 1999 and is slowly dying.

My thought was that I could simply take the hot-pluggable drives from the
old server and plug them into a new server and make some minor changes to
accomodate different NICs and a new Dell RAID5 driver, but then I remembered
that NW 6 stores some motherboard plug & play information in a file when it
is first installed.

My question is: Is there a way to re-run the plug & play/hardware
discovery that a new installation does without doing a new install? If so
can you direct me to some documentation? Or am I stuck with having to do
some kind of server migration just to slide new hardware under the old
