I'm needing assistance with adding new hard drives to MSA500. Currently it's setup as follows:
 
Parallel SCSI Array A ([3] 72.8 Gb drives in slots 12-13-14 RAID 5);
Parallel SCSI Array B ([3] 72.8 Gb drives in slots 9-10-11 RAID 5);
Parallel SCSI Array C ([2] 36.4 Gb drives in slots 1-2 RAID 1).

I need to add 3 more drives to ARRAY A and 2 more to ARRAY B. I'm using ACU ver.7.50.23.0 , What steps do I take?

Exit ACU, put one of the disks into the MSA500, open ACU again, click on parallel scsi array A and post another screenshot.
