Hot Spare joining Array

I have a ProLiant ML350 with a 431 Array controller. I currently have a RAID 5 with 3 active disks and a hot spare. I would like to add the hot spare to the active array. I am assuming that I can just load the on-line array utility and make the change, is this correct? Anyone done this and have some words of wisdom? Thanks in advance.
