I have a x3850 x5 running VMware esxi5. The server has a 1015 raid controller configured for RAID10 with 4 drives. I would like to add a hot spare to that configuration but I can find where to do that in webbios. Any ideas on how to add the hot spare???

Download ServeRAID M Software User's Guide: http://www-947.ibm.com/support/entry/portal/docdisplay?lndocid=MIGR-5086126
The User's Guide explains how to find the hot spare option.
Go to Section 4.6.3 and look at figure 4.52 (Physical Drive Screen). You'll see an option "Make Global HSP".
