new disk in DL360G5

GoodMorning,
we have in a DL360G5, 3 HD SAS 72GB configured in RAID 5.
The OS is Windows 2000 server sp4 with the "Array Configuration Utility 7.60.18.0"

We would like to add a new HD SAS 72GB in the avalaible slot. The question is :
There is a procedure to do this update ? Documentation ? We had only to add the new hard disk and startup the server ? We need to do a new array configuration or this will done automatically ?

Thanks

Best Regardas

Hi,
You have array configuration utility installed so no worries. This can be done online.

Just add the disk
start ACU
add the disk to array as a hot spare or add it to your RAID5 set.

rescan disks from OS.
