Adding disk on Sun Fire V245 w/FreeBSD 11

I have a Sun Fire V245 running 11.0.  It had one 146GB hard disk in it.  I
went to add a second similar disk but the OS doesn't seem to see it.  I can
tell the hardware sees it as if I pull it out while the machine's on I get
an alert from the ALOM. But I don't see a "da1" device in dmesg.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!
