VA7410 redundancy loss

Greetings. I have a mostly quiescent VA7410 on a server. I added 6 disks to it yesterday (2 at a time, about 3 hours apart). During the day the status was as I expected - Balancing. This morning the array shows 4 failed disks and status shows redundancy loss, rebuild failed. Could this be because of the high disk activity during the balancing caused these drives to fail? Should I start replacing the disks marked as failed. Suggestions? Thanks

Just FYI the array was not recoverable, and could not be rebuilt. It would also not reformat or do anything else, until I yanked the batteries from the controllers. Then I reformatted and it works normally again.
