How can I add to a node new disks?

I'm trying to add to an existing node, a set of new disks which already contain garbage data (so they will need to be formated first) and then configure them in RAID1.
Once connected to my system, the new disks are shoing up in the web UI under node -> disks, but I'm not finding any functionality to format those drives.
Also if I want to create a new ZFS using these new disks, the UI dialog is telling methat there are no disks unused.

Any idea how can I add the new disk to the node?


Never mind! I've figured it out. I had to select the new disk in order to get the whipe functionality enabled
