Add hot spare to P410i

I have a 380G7 with P410i controller and 3-disk RAID 5.  I added a 4th disk, but I cannot see how to make it the hot spare for the existing array.  Does the 410i controller support this?

 

From POST, it appears my only choice is to create a new, 1 disk RAID 0 volume.  There is a box for 'hot spare' but the GUI will not let me select it.

Hi,

 

Boot the server to Bios of the p410i which is ORCA ( option Rom Configuration Utility - F8 mostly ), you should see the option of adding the hot spare

Was the post useful? Say thanks by clicking the white KUDOS Star!

Re: Add hot spare to P410i

As I said - 'From POST, it appears my only choice is to create a new, 1 disk RAID 0 volume.  There is a box for 'hot spare' but the GUI will not let me select it.'    I assume that adding the hot spare cannot be done from here when the RAID 5 array already exists.  I have successfully done this on many HP controllers, but apparently the P410i does not support it through F8.

 

I booted using SmartStart and was able to add the hot spare from there.
