P400 RAID V Add Drive

I have physically added a new SAS drive to our existing RAID V array. I have updated the firmware on the drives and the P400 as well as updated ACU. I am unable to see the option in ACU to add the drive to the existing array, even though it sees the unassigned drive. This is a DL380 G5 machine. The drives are all identical, even down to the same exact model #.

Why am I not able to expand the array online? I thought the P400 supported this? There is 256 memory on the board, but no battery.

Hei Eric..

I've got the same prob. Manual says you can expand the array and use the ACU..

Solved it yet?

Thanks

The battery is required for array expansion.
