Migrating Disk from an Readynas Ultra6 (OS6.6.1) to a Readynas Pro6 (OS6.6.1)

Hi

 

I have a perfect working Ultra 6 with OS 6.6.1 and 3GB RAM. 6x3TB WD Red disk, x-raid. (like raid5)

I just bought a Pro 6 (4GB RAM, Q6600 cpu), upgraded now to OS6.6.1 too with a spare disk.

 

Can I just take the disks out from U6 and put into the Pro6? Will it work? Can I read and write my files?

Will the settings work? Will the apps (Plex, istatus) work? 

Model: RNDU6000 |READYNAS ULTRA 6 (DISKLESS)|EOL

Yes, that should work fine.

Power down both systems, remove the scratch disk from the Pro 6 and move your disks across (keep the disk order the same).

Can I use the HDD-trays in the Pro? (Ultra6 have square type button, Pro6 have round type button. i hate this last, because first time all 6 were stuck, but WD40 made miracle.... I like to use the square type, it looks better for me)

 

Is the BIOS version important, I if transfer the discs?
