IBM PS700 replaced, map existing drives on DS3500

IBM PS700 replaced, map existing drives on DS3500

Yesterday we swapped out a PS700 (840670Y). It's in a BladeCenter S. The planar went bad on the old one. New one is powered up, in SMS, but I don't want to screw up and lose all my existing data. I'm not familiar enough with these setups to just start clicking and typing. In the storage manager I can see the old Host Port Identifiers, so is it just a matter of adding the new Host Port Identifier as an option in storage manager?

Edit: below is my attempt at clarifying what I’m trying to ask, after I posted on another forum.

The storage backend for the BladeCenter S is an IBM DS3500. When I look at the mappings for blade in question I see the old Host Port Identifiers. The new/replacement blade shows up under Unassociated host port identifiers. So, my overall question is this, in order to regain access to the existing data in the new blade, do I just need to add the Host Port Identifier to the mappings for the host?

Pay an IBM partner to do that. It's not a lot of money.
