I have HP server DL 380 running on Raid 5 with three Hard Disk 36G and I want to upgrade the size of the Hard Disks so I will add to other hard disk on the server to be 5 Hard disks.

- Are the server will prepare them automaticly?
- Should those two hard disks be the same size of the old ones?
- is there is any Steps I should follow?
just I know I have to shift the old three HD and and the new two to be the first.

please advice
