I have these drives:
4. Display non-configured units

I have two ESLS on a 9009-42A. Two have been added to one and two to the other. Each ESLS now has a total of 19 drives.
I have two RAID5 parity sets with hot spare.
I'd like to add these drives to these raid sets.
3. Work with disk unit recovery
5. Delete disk unit data
2. Work with disk configuration
8. Work with device parity protection
2. Include unit in device parity protection
Include Device Parity Protection Failed
There are no disk units eligible for the selected operation
due to one or more of the following reasons:
o All the device parity capable disk units are already device
o If there are enough number of disk units available to create
a new parity set, then those units will be eligible for 'Start
Device Parity Protection' operation and not for the 'Include
Device Parity Protection' operation. Refer to the Backup and
Recovery Guide for more details.
o All the disk units in a parity set must be the same capacity
with a minimum number of either 3 or 4 units, and a maximum
number up to 18 units (depending upon the type of adapter)
in the resulting parity set.
o An IOA is in a condition that makes the disk units attached to
it read/write protected. Examine the 'Product activity log'
for any reference codes that are logged for the IO subsystem
and follow the appropriate procedure for the reference code to
correct the problem, if necessary.
o Not all disk units attached to an advanced function IOA have
reported to the partition. Retry the operation.
o The type/model of the disk units is not supported for the
o The device parity units are under a type of IOA which
requires an auxiliary write cache adapter.
Not that I wanted to do it this way but
