Smart Array P410i, adding logical drives

Hi, I have HP ML350 g6 with P410i controller. One array with Two logical drives. Two physical drives in bay 1 and 2 of the server. I just installed two more physical drives in bay 3 and 4 of the server.  I have ACU installed and want to configure the new drives as One more Logical drive. HOw do I add another Logical drive. I thought I've done this before - but for some reason - I;m not seeing an option to configure the new drives as a new logical drive. 

 

Thanks for your response.

Welcome to the forums. It's best to post a new topic when you have a question. This thread is almost 5 years old.

 

 

To answer your question.   You put disks in an array, and then create logical drives within that array. You can create a new array and logical drive for the new disks, or you can expand the current array and add another logical drive using the free space.  In your case it is probably easier to create another array and then create a new logical drive within the new array
