Dell Precision R320 controller PERC H310 mini

In open manager I see my RAID1 (two SSD drives) running Server 2012
I have 6 new SAS drives installed and would like to create a RAID5
In Open Manager I see 6 SAS drives under Enclosure in container 0
when I try to create the virtual disk and make the RAID5 I only see 5 SAS drives
if I  go to Server 2012 disk manager I do see one SAS drive, it's not partitioned

any suggestions to help me create a RAID5 of all 6 drives?

If you go to Virtual Disks in OpenManage, you should see a non-RAID volume ... you need to delete that. If you don't have that volume, then make sure your physical disks are all showing as Ready and that the missing one is not Foreign.
