HP Proliant DL360 G4p hard drive upgrade

I have a HP Proliant DL360 G4p that is running a mirrored array with two 36 gig drives. I have switched those out with two 72 gig drives. What utility do I use and what are the steps to utilize the entire drive space without deleting the old array configuration? Can it be done that way or does the array need to be deleted, which would result in loosing all data?

Just a quick question. In planning downtime, how long should I plan on the server being down if I am going from a mirrored array of two 36 gig drives to two 72 gig drives? for planning purposes..

You don't need a downtime, just make sure that there will be no activity on the server during drive rebuilding. Set Rebuild Priority to "high" using ACU. Rebuilding should take no more than 10-15 minutes, so it would be maximum 30 minutes for both drives.
