Simply add the disk while the server is up. You will only be presented with 2 chioces, RAID0 or add to Array B RAID 5.

Use the integrated Array Configuration Utility Help file to get instructions. If you installed the server using SmartStart, under Programs the are HP System tools or something like that, inside there is Array Configuration Utility. A WEB based tool to manage your Smart Array Controller.
On the hp.com youll find also ACU users guide
