Mounting an unassigned physicaldrive

Hello!

I would like to mount an unassigned physicaldrive on my dl380 ( os: SLES9 ).

Smart Array 6i in Slot 0

array A
physicaldrive 2:0 (port 2:id 0 , Parallel SCSI, 72.8 GB, OK)
physicaldrive 2:1 (port 2:id 1 , Parallel SCSI, 72.8 GB, OK)

array B
physicaldrive 2:2 (port 2:id 2 , Parallel SCSI, 146.8 GB, OK)
physicaldrive 2:3 (port 2:id 3 , Parallel SCSI, 146.8 GB, OK)

unassigned
physicaldrive 2:4 (port 2:id 4 , Parallel SCSI, 300 GB, OK)


The 300GB drive is the new one and, well, thats the one I would like to mount without reboot.

Is that possilbe ?
