Unable to add new Disk Array to RS/12FC

We have a Disk Array defined inside a RS12/FC with 5 18.2GB disks configured in Raid-5.

One of this disks has failed but we don't have yet another to replace it.

On the other hand We need to add two 72GB disks configured in Raid-1 while still the Raid-5 logical drive is in "degraded state"

We're working with FCArray Assistant A00.02.05.

It's true that it's not possible to add new disk array (Raid-1 for the new drives) until the dead disk has been replaced? (The "Edit configuration" option inside "Manual configuration" is grayed)

Your comments will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!!
