Adding disks to existing raid 5 on Poweredge r610

Hi !

I have Dell Poweredge R610 , with esxi 5.0 installed on it.

I need to add 2 disks to my existing raid 5. I read that the raid array supports the Online Capacity Expansion. 
The problem is that I cannot access the raid manager because I cant install the Dell OpenManage on my esxi, and its only possible to do that on VCenter, which I don't have.

I cannot do it from iDrac (do I wrong?) and cant afford downtime for more than 10 hours.

If I access the raid management from boot, and add the disks to the array, should I wait until the raid will rebuilt? 

ThanksSmiley Happy
