The VM must be shutdown before you can add drives.

If its vCD 5.5 you don't have to power the machine off.
You will have to choose properties and add the disk. The steps are
1 Click My Cloud.
2 In the left pane, click VMs.
3 Select a virtual machine, right-click, and select Properties.
4 On the Hardware tab, click Add in the Hard Disks section.
5 Select the disk size, bus type, bus number, and unit number and click OK.

If its below 5.5. Do the steps by powering the machine off. Perform the steps and power on.
