replacing SD cards on R620

OK, I just bought an R620, and I got the dual SD card option. Of course, 
for a fairly high-end server we paid about $10k for, I get 2GB SD cards. 
(Lame, Dell!)

So I went to Target and bought some 16GB cards. I figured that if I put 
one in and let it rebuild, and then put the other in and let it rebuild, 
I'd be able to expand the partition and the filesystem. But the system 
still thinks I've got 2GB cards in the machine.

I've been through the lifecycle controller (which is still not quite ready 
for prime time) and couldn't figure out how to reset the cards. Does 
anyone know how to tell the system that the cards have changed, and to 
update its configuration?
