  1.  From the Main Menu screen, select SSA
  2.  The SSA Adapter List window opens:

  3.  The Adapter Menu window opens:

     Select Hot-spare disks.

  4.  A list of the hot spare disk drives that are controlled by the adapter is displayed.

    Note: The list might not contain any hot spares.

     Press Insert to add a new hot spare disk drive.

  5.  A list of candidate disk drives is displayed:

  6.  Highlight the entry for the disk drive that is to be the hot spare.
     (You can identify the disk drive by putting the cursor on its  Unique ID in this list and pressing F9. This causes a light on the disk drive to flash.
     Pressing FlO stops the light flashing.)
     Press Enter to define this disk drive as a hot spare.

     The previous window is displayed with the new hot-spare added to the list.
