RAID1 replacing of the failing drive, adding and activating spare drive.

I made a RAID 1 on two disks status of the logical drive is OK.
In the raid, the first disk (mirror group 0) has the status: Predictive Failure, and the second (mirror group 1) the status OK.
I added a third disk as a spare by ACU (hpacucli - Everything carries on a running system) to eliminate damage to the drive when replacing.
Can I turn on rebuilding the data on the disk spare? How do I change the status to "active spare" ?
Spare disk must be formatted before? After the reconstruction "spare drive" can I replace it as a second drive "data disk", instead of the damaged ?
