it's done at the OS level
you can use OpenManage Server Administrator to manage the drives
assuming everything is connected properly, OMSA should see the device attached and all your drives where you can manage your disks and arrays

Thanks. I opened openmanage but only saw the drives in the machine itself under storage tab.  But there's several open manage apps available , right?
