Disk relocation by servicemag (3PAR 8000)

i need to move 3 of the drives from slots 19, 15,11 to Slots 20,21,22 using a servicemag approach. How to do this?
Transfer offline 6 disks, physically rearrange, and then make a resume in the servicemag? Does it work like this?
I have a pdf with the commands of the servicemag, but what kind of commands do I need to enter for relocation?

Thanks for the help!
