Array configuration changes

Is it possible to change the raid configuration without losing data on a HP Proliant DL 380 G3 server........

from
1+0 (+Spare) O/S 3*36GB
1+0 (+Spare) Data 3*72GB
to
1+0 O/S 2*36GB(no spare)
Raid5 Data 4*72GB(replacing 36GB with 72GB)
Grateful for all help.

Re: Array configuration changes

Yes, you can change to a raid 5 configuration without the loss of data.

Once the additional drive is added into the server select the logical drive and on the right you will have the option to "migrate raid level/stripe size". Select this and from the drop down box change it to raid 5. Once you save the changes it will start migrating the array.
The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..
