Re-using disks

I would like to know if I can move the disks from a V240 chassis into a V440 chassis to use the increased resources (CPU & Memory) to boost performance. I know you can move disks between V210/240 chassis's, but I'm not sure if this would work between 240s & 440s. Any help would be much appreciated. (4 Replies)

       vgreduce - reduce a volume group

       vgreduce  [-a|--all] [-A|--autobackup y|n] [-d|--debug] [-h|-?|--help] [--removemissing] [-t|--test] [-v|--verbose] VolumeGroupName [Physi-

       vgreduce allows you to remove one or more unused physical volumes from a volume group.

       See lvm for common options.

       -a, --all
	      Removes all empty physical volumes if none are given on command line.

	      Removes all missing physical volumes from the volume group, if there are no logical volumes allocated on those. This resumes  normal
	      operation of the volume group (new logical volumes may again be created, changed and so on).

	      If this is not possible (there are logical volumes referencing the missing physical volumes) and you cannot or do not want to remove
	      them manually, you can run this option with --force to have vgreduce remove any partial LVs.

	      Any logical volumes and dependent snapshots that were partly on the missing disks get removed completely. This includes those  parts
	      that lie on disks that are still present.

	      If your logical volumes spanned several disks including the ones that are lost, you might want to try to salvage data first by acti-
	      vating your logical volumes with --partial as described in lvm (8).
