Smart Array 641-Adding an online spare

I have a Smart Array 641 controller running 3 disks in Raid 5. I want to add an online spare to the config but was unsure how to accomplish this. The only real option I see in the ACU is to modify the raid config but I didn't want to get to far in without know if that was the correct place to add it. Any help is greatly appreciated.

That's because you don't have an unused disk right now. If you connect a disk to the 641 you will see more options.
