Install Additional Hard Disk to Proliant DL380 G3

I am running a Raid1 configuration (two drive set up) that is running just fine. I need to add a separate hard disk for additional storage. This is a production server so I don't want to just pop it in and hope.

I don't need to add this to the raid setup.

What steps do I need to take

Hello,

Pop the disk into a free slot.This can be
done online the raid controller supports this.Then run the ACU online from windows or
offline from Smartstart.You will see the drive then following instructions create a logical dive.

You can just "pop" it into one of the bays.

Running Windows? Just open up ACU and configure the drive. Once configured (Array B, 1 Logical Drive RAID0), return to the Windows Disk Administrator and initialize and format the new drive. You may need to do a rescan.

Running Linux? Run the ACU somehow (not sure how things work exactly in linux), do a scan and you should be able to format the drive and use.
