RAID 5 with no HOT SPARE

Hello,
which is the best method to upgrade a RAID 5 with no HOT SPARE with a RAID 5 + 1 in a ML 350 with SMARTARRAY 641? Simply insert the new drive in BAY 6 and work with Smartarray control? There are the possibility to crash the RAID?

Thanks

Do you intend to add a hotspare to a RAID that do not have any hotspare configured yet.

If yes,a Hotspare can be easily assigned using the Online or the Offline Array Configuration Utility.

First update the Proliant Support Pack and Firmware.
Next use the ACU (Online), Start->Programs->HP System Tools->HP Array Configuration Utility->HP Array Configuration Utility , where you can give the order/command to expand the Array where RAID 5 is configured.
