Tnx for fast response.

But problem is that in kb325590 say :

For Basic volumes, the unallocated space for the extension must be the next contiguous space on the same disk.”

In my case is previous space on disk.

You can only do that with 3rd party tools. If you want to have it done while the server is running, you'll also need a server version and those usually aren't cheap. Paragon has good tools for this (partition manager and disk manager should both be able to accomplish this):

Whether a reboot is required depends on the situation and can't be completely ruled out.

There are also free tools available, but they all need to do the job while the server's OS is down, and they can take some time to complete. The PartedMagic LiveCD includes a partition editor with which you can move and resize partitions. As long as the RAID array is recognized properly it should work fine:
