I think yea, since I have two separate arrays on PERC 5/e. Just add the drives and in the controller setup (or from system manager or any other dell software in running OS) create a new array from the added drives.

Can I just add the drives and then boot up and configure them using the dell system management app in the OS?

Yea, I use the open manage server administrator webapp and you can create a virtual disk with it easily.

FYI: I noticed, that I run two separate arrays on the same connector.
