Expand RAID 50 on DL380 G6 / Smart Array P410

Hi,
we have an HP Proliant DL380 G6 in use which currently has 6 disks in a RAID 50 array installed. Since I run out of space I would like to know if it is possible to add two more disks of the same type without rebuilding the array.

I don't know if that would help me out but I can't use the Windows based SmartArray configuration tool as the system has VMware ESXi installed.

Thanks in advance, Markus
