Preparation: You need the hardware path where the disk is added and the type of the disk drive. You need a free logical device (ldev) number for your new disk. By typing dstat all you see all existing disks in your system with ldev numbers and disk IDs.
Then you should have a look with print iodfault.pub.sys what kind of ID belongs to your disk drive. If you can not find the right ID then the disk is not supported on the OS version you use. Pay attention: The disk ID in dstat all is not always identical with the one from iodfault. You need to use the one from iodfault.
You need to logon with hello manager.sys for the config.
At sysgen> prompt first save the config you have for desaster recovery with: keep CYA (CYA is the file name).
at io> prompt:
I assume for my example an existing path 56/40, SCSI ID 2, disk ID=HPC2490WD, ldev 3, type:
AP 56/40.2 ID=PSEUDO
AD 2 56/40.2.0 ID=HPC2490WD
Then you can verify if you successfully added the disk: type at io prompt: ld 3
Now keep your changes with:
Result should be: Configuration files successfuly saved.
At MPE prompt you must perform DOIONOW to make the changes become active.
Now your disk drive is visible but not configured to a volume set yet.
Volume Management is done with volutil.
at MPE prompt type volutil
1) Configuring disk alone as user volume set:
volutil: newset User_Volume_Set_Name Member1 3
A verify question will appear and afterwards a note that you added the disk.
2) Configuring disk to an existing user volume set:
volutil: Newvol Existing_User_Volume_Set_Name:Member2 3
3) Configuring disk to System Volume Set:
volutil: Newvol MPEXL_SYSTEM_VOLUME_SET:Member2 3 100 100
When everything is done take a new SLT at sysgen> ta with the new configuration.
Existing Volume Names can be seen with dstat all. When you type in the name do not use -0.
This is only an overview. So take your time to configure the disk because if you do not have experience with it, it might be diffiuclt.

The configuration portion of it is pretty straight forward using SYSGEN.
