Replacing bad hard drive in ProLiant DL360 G4p

I think I know the answer to this one, but I want to make sure.  I am going to replace a hard drive in a mirrored set on a proliant DL 360 G4p which has a smart array.  I believe all I need to do is to pull out the bad hard drive and put in the new hard drive and the existing hard drive will copy all the information.  Can someone confirm this is correct or do I need to do something different?

As long as the drives are hot plug and in a mirror (RAID 1) configuration, you are correct.
The copy process is called rebuild, if the HP agents are installed one can monitor the progress.
