Yup no problem there so long as space in the cabinet exists. You just go
into 'Start Device Parity Protection' in Service tools and it'll set 'em
up as a new set. They must be on their own because they are of different
capacity than existing drives.

The main problem here is when you get billed for $5000 for four new
drives when you were expecting about $1000 for just one!
