AiO 1200r Expanding RAID 6 ?

I'm attempting to add new disks to the existing RAID 6. I using the CLI "add disks" command. Shouldn't I see a change in the size of the array when the expansion is finnished?

Also how can I see a list of spare drives from the RAID 6?

TIA!

as far as know you can't expand wihtout recreate (destroy) Raid...
regarding spare display i think you can see under ACU GUI

Thank you for your Reply.

Within the HP document "Configuring Arrays on HP Smart Array Controllers Reference Guide", there is a section titled "Expanding an array".

That section is focused on the CLI and the "add drives" command. I'm aware that this does not specifically mean that this is possible. I'm just holding on to a slim hope.

I do have my 2.5T of data backed up. It will take 5 to 7 days to restore to a new array if that is what I need to do.
