MSA 2040 reorganisation of disks

Hi all,

We have an MSA2040 with 2 additional shelves. It's populated with 300GB SAS disks.

I need to install SSD drives to improve performance on our VMware clones, and the reseller tells me I need to install these onto the MSA itself which I have no doubt is correct. However, I have 3 vdisks that use disks on the MSA as well as on other shelves (so the vdisk uses disks spread across shelves). Is there a way to move these around natively without having to build new vdisks and migrating data on the VMware side? Can any of this be done on the SMU side?
