DL380 G3 Array Settings

I am currently using 4 HDD in a raid 5 config. I have one bay open. I am wondering if I can put a good drive in the empty bay now and have the array have a spare in the mix in case of a HDD failure. Can I do that now that the array is already configured and running?

yes you can you insert the new HDD and select spare management and assign that HDD as spare to the existing RAID with no downtime at all

you have to use array configuration utility

Didn't your momma teach you to say thanks!
