I need to find some good instructions for using the Dell OPENManage Server administrator to setup a new (used) MD 1000. I am adding the new drive to perc 6/E . I have formatted the drive into a RAID 5 26 TB drive but without a hotswap spare (from what I can tell). It shows in ready state and size of drive. I think I messed up in using all 14 disk so now I do not have an available disk for a spare. It states that I have not available drives when I click the drop down for 'Assign/Unassign Dedicated Hot Spare'. I need this drive for backups only not as storage. I really need to find some instruction on setting this drive up properly from the start. Or if you think I should leave it as is. If as is how do I get the OS to recognized the drive?
