All depends on your current configuration, and HP software managing the array. You are not providing much information to accompany your question.

How are the existing drives configured? Raid level?
What type of server is managing the san?
What software is used to manage the san?
What generation is the P2000? G1, G2, G3

Open RAID GUI and look for Expand function - or better yet refer to the manual (PDF) search for the word "expand". It should be under RAID volume

Follow the instruction on screen.
