How can I add a spare drive to raid 5?

I added a drive to a DL380 with a 6i smart array and went in to the smart array configuration. When viewing the existing raid 5 (3 drives) logical drive it shows no available drives to be assigned for spare. When I go to add logical drives it's available.

Thanks

Hi!

*Start ACU
*Select the Array (For exampel Array A)
*on the right there should be a link Spare Management.
*select the new drive as spare
*Apply settings
