I have an HP ML-360 G6 server thats Raid 5 with a hot swap (4 drives)  in bays 1-4.  3003 Server R2.
The array degraded and the hot swap engaged. I attempted to replace the bad drive in bay1 but that bay is failing and will not bring the drive ready, so I put the new drive in Slot 5. Now i have a 250 GB SATA Unassigned Drive Port 21:Box1:Bay5
The Array controller is ver And the Firmware is 1.78 for the E200i

I am tenetive to proceed, also I don't see a way in the utility to add the drive.  I need to assign this drive to the array and remove the drive listed as " X  ???SATA Drive at Port 1I:Box1:Bay1"

Can someone give me instruction / procedure please?
