The server has three drive in a raid 5 Array. I would like to add an additional drive (1TB) to the server. I would like to add the drive but not have it in the array with the three 230GB drives. How can i add this drive on the server without it being in the Raid 5? Thanks in advance.

Providing the server has available bays/ports for the drive you should be able to plug it in and it should pick it up as a separate disk.

It should only add it to the RAID array if you manually add it through the RAID config.
