I'm trying to created a RAID 6 array on a P400 256MB w/BBWC controller and ORCA only shows RAID 5 as highest level!.
From the quickspecs and manuals the only requierement for RAID 6 is battery-backed cache, i can't find anywhere that says it requires 512MB option(and i wouldn't want the nasty surprise of not having RAID6 after having bought that module)
FW is 7.22 so it's quite current

I think , you need to buy a Smart Array Advanced Pack License to create RAID 6.
Please check the link below. You can verify that with the trial license.

From the P400 quickspecs: http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/1240
"Addition of the battery backed cache upgrade enables BBWC, RAID 6 with ADG..."
So, why is this P400 WITH BBWC not having the RAID 6 option?

Thanks a lot for that info and sorry about the wrong info.
Can you pls attach an ACU report, if you are still facing that issue.

i ended pu making a RAID5 array, unfortunately it is a production server with VMware from one of my customers, so i won't be able to do an ACU report(if at all since i'd have to use acu offline cd) anytime soon
