Why? What are you trying to do? Are you putting larger disks? You should change one disk at a time and allow the new disk to finish rebuilding before you change another disk.

Have you looked at the ACU/ADU screens and command outputs if it is shown there? Look at the physical and logical views of the drives. I don't have one available right now to check.
