It isn't clear to me what you are supposed to do. The dmraid command seems to be used to inspect raid arrays. You just put in a new drive, so I presume it needs to be partitioned and formatted. I suppose you could use dmraid to see what the current state of the array is. Is the controller supposed to be smart enough to partition and format a swapped drive by itself?
