Windows 2000 Server Upgrade AX100 connected

I have an old PowerEdge 2650 with Windows 2000 server that we I need to bring up to Windows 2003 server.  There is currently a connection from a Qlogic Fibre Channle Adapter to an Dell/EMC AX100.  It has PowerPath 4.5.1.2 and Navisphere 6.19.4.9.0 installed as well.  Yes, I do have a full system backup also ;).

Is it a relatively painless process bringing the server up to 2003 and still maintaining a connection to the AX100, or am I looking at a more complex process?  I'm planning to slipstream the PERC Raid drivers as well as the Qlogic HBA drivers (if necessary) prior to install.  The Navisphere and PowerPath versions are actually newer than that of a 2003 server that is currently successfully connected to an AX100, that shouldn't be an issue.

Just looking for any gotchas before I dive in...
