Expanding disks

I currently have two disks installed on my HP Proliant DL585 G6. I want to install extra 2 disks. Only problem is I have important data on the 2 disks that are currently installed. It is an ESX VMware Server host machine. I cannot afford to loose this data. And because it is ESX host machine it is not something I can backup and reinstall. How can I add the 2 extra disks without loosing this data?

Thanks in advance for your assistance!

Re: Expanding disks

Some more info about your raid configuration and raid controller would be usefull.

But you could also try to backup and restore your current installation using clonezilla. It recently started supporting vmfs so this could work. And you have those extra disk to test on anyway.
