Downtime required if adding more disks and enclosures to EVA8400.?

I am planing to add more disks and enclosures to an EVA8400. Will it require any Downtime?

THANKS in advance.

If there is room for the enclosures so that you don't need to move any components, yes. Expand one loop only and wait for the enclosure+disk to show up. Then check if the I/O-Module is doing a firmware upgrade. If yes, wait until it is finished. Check the status again and when it looks fine, continue with the second loop.
