HP ML350 P410i Hot Spare won´t work.. different drive model?

Last Modified: 2015-12-21
I have a 4 disk on raid 5.....
One of them fail and I replace it with another compatible HD of the same size and didn´t work...
After going into the Storage Administrator console I found this.
Original drive
Size 279.46 GiB (300.07 GB)
Drive Type SATA HDD
Model ATA WDC WD3000BLFS-6

Hot Spare
Size 279.40 GiB (300.00 GB)
Drive Type SATA HDD
Model ATA WD3000BLFS-23YBU
Serial Number WD-WXE0C79P7715

The 0.06 GB difference is making this drive not to work with the current array?
