MSA2012FC - Mixed disk???

Hi Guys


I have a MSA2012FC array and we have 12x750GB disk installed. We have a failed disk and the spare disk kit in. i've changed the faulty disk with the 1TB disk, but i can not create an gobal spare on this 1TB disk and get the following error


None of the available drives will protect existing vdisks


This 1TB disk is compactiable with the MSA2012FC, what am i doing wrong?? or that the MSA2012FC can not support mixed disk or the 1TB disk can not be used in place of the 750GB  disk?
