add spare driver to an existing RAID5 array at a later time?

I just installed MSA60 with 12 450GB SAS drives, but one of the drives was DOA. I wanted to have 11 drives in RAID5 + 1 spare. Can I just create RAID5 without spare now and add a spare drive to an existing array at a later time in the Array Configuration Utility?
