hpacucli - can't manage spare disks

Hardware is Proliant DL360 G7 with Smart Array P410i, SAS 300GB disks

 

What I did:

HP Array Configuration Utility CLI 8.75-12.0
Detecting Controllers...Done.

=> ctrl slot=0 pd all show

Smart Array P410i in Slot 0 (Embedded)

   array A

      physicaldrive 1I:1:1 (port 1I:box 1:bay 1, SAS, 0 MB, Failed)
      physicaldrive 1I:1:2 (port 1I:box 1:bay 2, SAS, 300 GB, OK)
      physicaldrive 2I:1:7 (port 2I:box 1:bay 7, SAS, 300 GB, OK)
      physicaldrive 2I:1:8 (port 2I:box 1:bay 8, SAS, 300 GB, OK)
      physicaldrive 1I:1:3 (port 1I:box 1:bay 3, SAS, 300 GB, OK, active spare)

   unassigned

      physicaldrive 1I:1:4 (port 1I:box 1:bay 4, SAS, 300 GB, OK)

 

=> ctrl slot=0 ld all show detail

=> ctrl slot=0 array A add spares=allunassigned

Error: This operation is not supported with the current configuration. Use the
       "show" command on devices to show additional details about the
       configuration.

 

=> ctrl slot=0 array A add spares=1I:1:4

Error: This operation is not supported with the current configuration. Use the
       "show" command on devices to show additional details about the
       configuration.

 

Questions:

- What exactly does the "operation is not supported" error message mean?

- What do I type to add the unassigned disk as a spare to the array?

- (bonus marks) Why hasn't the active spare automaticall flipped to replace the failed disk?
