Hot Daisy chaining 2 MSA50's to a DL360 G5 with P800 card possible?

We have a DL360 G5 with 6 146GB internal drives and a P800 raid card (with BBWC), with a StorageWorks 50 Modular Smart Array (filled with 12 146GB drives) attached, that we are using as an Openfiler SAN.

I'd like to add more spindles to the current 18 drive RAID 6 array by adding a 2nd MSA50 to the system.

Can I attach the 2nd MSA50 to the 1st MSA50 hot? Or do I have to power the system down before adding the 2nd MSA50?

I do hpacucli software installed on the system.

What would the procedure be to add the MSA50, and then add the drives to the Array?

Do the 2 MSA50's have to have the same firmware version?

Thanks in advance for your advice and help.
