Adding disks to 2540 array

Adding disks to 2540 array

Hello folks. We have a Storagetek 2500 array attached to a Sun M4000 server. At present the array is only half-full with 6 disks, and I would like to add two more. never having worked with this array before I wonder if anyone could advise on some dos and don'ts, particularly regarding firmware and the like.

I monitor the array with the Common Array Manager graphical interface (version 6.0.1, which I understand is a bit old). Can the latter be used to incorporate the two disks and make them available to be added to a filesystem?

All and any information gratefully received.
