removing the dat 72 taking up 2 slots on the server

HP ml350 g4p, currently 3 drives in a RAID 5 config. There is a DAT72 tape drive that is not used taking up 2 slots. I want to remove this tape drive and add 2 HDrives in a RAID 1 config.  There is no dismount option in the ACU for the tape drive.  Can I just remove the dat72 tape drive and add the 2 new drives?

Yes, It is detected on startup. Once it is removed it will no longer appear.
