Reconstructing RAID-0 to RAID-10 using omconfig

I have a one-disk RAID-0 array and three identical blank disks. I
want to put the three new disks into the controller (PERC 4/Di) and
reconstruct the array into a RAID-10. My questions are:
1) Does this look like a reasonable command to do so?
omconfig storage vdisk action=reconfigure controller=0 vdisk=0 raid=r10
2) What is the "size" command supposed to represent? The total size of
the virtual disk as it appears to the OS? The size of each segment?
(The disks are 140GB each.)
3) Will this do a "hot reconstruct" with the data in-place, or will it
wipe everything? When I reconstructed the array from 2-disk RAID-1 to
1-disk RAID-0 (by accident) with dellmgr, it did it in-place.
4) Is there a way to do what I want to do with dellmgr (5.31) instead?
Thanks in advance for any input; this server handles our backup
database as well as all our backups, so I'd rather not destroy it. :)
