Rebuild Newly created Raid Array on Dell Equallogic PS6100

Yes, We just purchased a Dell Equallogic PS6100 and it came with a raid 6 configuration with 4 spares and we would like to
blow away this configuration and start with a new raid with only 1 spare to give us more storage. Currently it gives us 26tb with 4 spares and each drive is 2.73tb. What is the steps to rebuild the raid with only 1 spare.

Thanks,

Assuming you have 14 disks

RAID 6 --  1 Spare Disk -- (11 + 2) ---- Best Practice
RAID 5  -- 1 Spare Disk ---(12+1) ----Not for business critical data
