The upgrade you want to make is supported. See:

ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/products/storageworks/techdoc/tapestorage/MSL_drivematrix.pdf

You'll need to get the required number of the upgrade drive units (P/N AD612B, and two of the dual LTO magazines (P/N AD621A). If your SAN support 4 GB you may also want to consider upgrading the embedded storage router to 4 GB (P/N AD577A - one per two drives).
