Ensure there is a Cache configured for the controller to support the Expansion of the RAID Array.

Please be more clear on "but SSA doesnot have manage data option"

Follow the Instructions provided in the Smart Storage Administrator User Guide for Expanding the Array

Write back for further clarifications
