Yes I think this should be possible. In ServerView RAID Manager, look under RAID Level Migration. Can take some time, suggest you find a quiet time to do it and (just in case) ensure you have a complete backup.

Different system I jnow but have a look at https://forum.ts.fujitsu.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=102&t=48138
