Configuring Online spare using HP ACU

HP Proliant ML370 server setup using Smart Start CD, RAID 5, 6 X 146GB disks.

My question is how to set one of the disks as an online spare for the array using ACU? I've looked through the ACU and cant for the life of me see where I can mark a disk as online spare. What am I missing?

    Are 6 disks part of the array now?

    Then there won't be an option for a hot spare as there no disks left to spare out.

    Need to automated builds with one disk pulled, so it doesn't become part of the array, then it's available as a spare.
