You need to boot into the partition manager (normally F8 at startup) and set the RAID level to create the volume
On the DL380 (when installed) you can use de HP Array Configuration Utility. I assume this software is also available on the ML 350 or to download and install it yet.

Start | HP System Tools | HP Array Configuration Utility

If not you can ad the disk to a current raidset to expand or replace a defect one. Be very carefull tho, not deleting the active / current one!
