I'm replacing my 6TB drives with 12TB drives in my DS923+. I just succesfully replaced one drive, "system succesfully repaired", log says.. Now datascrubbing is running.
I however have one more drive to replace. Is it safe to replace that drive aswell (same volume obviously) right now or should I wait until scrubbing is done?

Replacing a drive while scrubbing is occurring, will disrupt file integrity checks since there would no longer be content redundancy.

When replacing failing drives, or replacing drives with larger drives, I always recommend updating all backups and running a scrub to ensure data integrity, before pulling a working drive. This is simply good common sense practice.
 
I followed your advice.. I've now upgraded the last of my three drives. But, it does a "repair" in two passes now and it takes aloong time to complete. I'm pretty sure the first two drive replacements went pretty quick with their "repair"-pass so I'm a bit surprised...
