HP DL380P Gen8 / HP Smart Array P420i - RAID 5 Expansion

I have an HP ProLiant DL380p Gen8 server.  NOS is Windows 2008 R2 ENT.

Install is an HP Smart Array P420i (BBWC enabled)

SAS Array A - Not in question - This array has the System Volume and an additional (Data) volume.

SAS Array B is the one in question.

Physically, SAS Array B  has (6) 300GB SAS drives installed. (See attached)

 

Logically, the server has (2) RAID 5 containers. (See attached)

We want to upgrade the (6) 300GB SAS drives with (6) 600GB SAS drives.  I've performed this activity multiple times with RAID 1 cintainers.  I'm not sure if this is possible with a RAID5 container.  Not to mention this server has (2) RAID5 containers on the same SAS Array.

Thanks for any expertise you can provide.

Cheers!
