Upgrading HP Dynamic Smart Array B120i RAID Controller

Last Modified: 2016-12-08
We have a HP DL 360e Gen 8 with the standard HP Dynamic Smart Array B120i RAID Controller.
We're buying the FBWC battery (HP 512MB 36in FBWC B-Series Smart Array) so we can upgrade to RAID 5
We have ESX on it, it's configured with 4 x 2TB disks in a 0+1 config.

Can this be upgraded on the fly and how does it go about this?
