using hpacucli CLU to change RAID 0 to RAID 1

On a RHEL 4 distro I am trying to use the HP array configuration tool to alter a RAID 0 setup to be RAID 1. The second disk for which I want to mirror the first disk onto is recognised... The problem is non of the commands are working.

Can someone guide me where this is all going wrong? and provide the command to acheive my requirement.

I have tried the following and it does not work
(using HP Array Configuration Utility CLI 8.20-18.0)

ctrl slot=1 logicaldrive 1 add drives=2I:1:2

---below is the details ----

You don't have a BBWC option. "Battery Pack count:0". Without a battery you can not do any of these online changes.
You will be doing "online array expansion" and "raid level migration".

Look under "Management features".

Also did you resolve the dependancies of the hpacucli software on the libc package?

Re: using hpacucli CLU to change RAID 0 to RAID 1

the response was accurate (once I added the raid controller battery the configuration utility became responsive). The recommendation would be to HP to advise why the tool is not functional re: missing battery pack). thanks for the response.
