INN Upgrade Problem

my newsreader machine has two parts
  frontend: with FreeBSD, INN and the configuration files
  backend: a netapp with tradspool and ~news/db/

the frontend runs INN 2.2.2 and due to an increasing amount
of users and hardware problems, I've prepared a new bigger machine
with INN 2.3.1 to be the new frontend.

My question is: 
If I just exchange the frontends, will INN 2.3.1 after I started
it just accept the old history, active etc. and start working?
Or to I need to change/do something else?

Unfortunately there is no testmachine available to test this
