Creating new RAID using HPACUCLI

 

I'm looking for some assistance in creating a new RAID5 and logical drive from 4 new 900Gb SAS drives recently added to a HP DL380 G7 server using the HPACUCLI command.

There is already a RAID1 consisting of x2 146Gb drives that contavins the ESXi 5.1 install
And a RAID5 array consisting of x12 300Gb drives on a HP MAS DAS device

When I I run "controller all show config" from  HPACUCLI you can see the x2 146Gb RAID1, the x4 new 900Gb SAS and the x12 300GB drives

Here is the output.....

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware vSphere CLI>esxcli.exe -u root -p ??????
--server=10.10.x.x hpacucli cmd -q "controller all show config"

FIRMWARE UPGRADE REQUIRED: A firmware update is recommended for this controller
                           to prevent rare potential data write errors on a
                           RAID 1 or RAID 1+0 volume in a scenario of
                           concurrent background surface analysis and I/O write
                           operations.  Please refer to Customer Advisory
                           c01587778 which can be found at hp.com.

I need a HPACUCLI command that will create a new RAID5 array and logical disk with the x4 900G SAS drives with out interfering with the 2 exisiting arrays and hpefully do this with out rebooting the server in into the BIO RAID config utility if I don't have to.
