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
P.S. This thread ahs been moved from General to ProLiant Servers (ML,DL,SL). - Hp Forum Moderator

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
