HPACUCLI + P410/512 + RAID5 + Expanding

[ Edited ]

Currently have a RAID5 array of 4 x 3TB Sata Disks on a P410/512 running 5.7FW:

 

Logical Drive: 1
Size: 8.2 TB
Fault Tolerance: RAID 5
Heads: 255
Sectors Per Track: 32
Cylinders: 65535
Strip Size: 256 KB
Full Stripe Size: 768 KB
Status: OK
Caching: Enabled
Parity Initialization Status: Initialization Completed
Unique Identifier: 600508B1001CCF48C907177A8A8702DF
Disk Name: /dev/sdg
Mount Points: None
Logical Drive Label: A2B46355PACCRID11180J9T2320
Drive Type: Data

 

I have an additional 4 disks unassigned:

 

(1 of 4):

unassigned

physicaldrive 2I:0:5
Port: 2I
Box: 0
Bay: 5
Status: OK
Drive Type: Unassigned Drive
Interface Type: SATA
Size: 3 TB
Rotational Speed: 7200
Firmware Revision: CC4B
Serial Number: Z1F0NNXW
Model: ATA ST3000DM001-9YN1
SATA NCQ Capable: True
SATA NCQ Enabled: True
Current Temperature (C): 35
Maximum Temperature (C): 52
PHY Count: 1
PHY Transfer Rate: 3.0Gbps

 

I use the standard command:

 

=> ctrl slot=7 ld 1 add drives=allunassigned

 

Error: This operation is not supported with the current configuration. Use the
"show" command on devices to show additional details about the
configuration.


Reason: Transformation size zero

 

Or the alternative:

 

=> ctrl slot=7 array A add drives=allunassigned

 

Error: This operation is not supported with the current configuration. Use the
"show" command on devices to show additional details about the
configuration.

 

Reason: Transformation size zero

 

I have a battery for my 512mb cache but it's not connected (dead, need a new one) - I should still be able to override and perform this.
