With this server, it had 3 physical drives running RAID 5. I have added another 2 drives and using the raid manager they are now part of the logical drive but the logical drive size has not increased. All 5 drives identify  as part of the array and part of logical drive. In the logical drive, the capacity has not increased. What do I need to do to expand the logical drive to take advantage of the extra capacity of the added by the extra drives?
