MSA1000 disk upgrade to larger capacity

I have a MSA1000 array with (8) 72.8 Gb drives in a Raid 5 format.
I want to upgrade these drives to 143 Gb drives.
If I replace one drive at a time with 143 Gb drives will it rebuild defaulting to the 72.8 Gb size or the larger capacity?

Re: MSA1000 disk upgrade to larger capacity

By default, the total capacity is limited by the smallest disk drive in the disk drive array. Once you have replaced _all_ disks in the array, I have been told, the MSA1000 will make the additional capacity available to you. You can then either make existing logical disks larger or create additional logical disks.
