RAID levels on P410 Array controller

Can anyone tell me how to get RAID level 5 on a Proliant P410 controller. I just purchased 2 ML350 G6 servers and I added a 2 bay LFF cage (total of 8 LFF drives). I want to run RAID level 5, but when I run the HP array configuration utility, I only have the options of RAID level 0 or 0+1. I have seen other posts where people are running RAID level 5 on an ML350 G6, but I don't have that option. The firmware revision for the controller is 3.66 so it should support it. Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Michael D. Winn

Look at the quickspecs:

if you have no additional cache module, you can only use raid 0 and raid 1.


Open the chassis - the module slot is next to the disk cage on the systemboard.

Hope this helps!
