Hello Aquino Mota,

What you will need to do is to insert the drives into the empty slots.  Once the drives are inserted then you will need to login to unisphere and select your VNX 5600.  Once you have selected your system then you will need to go to the drives & make sure that all drives are green and online.  Once drives are online then you will need to go to your lun and right click, & you should see an option to expand lun.
