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.

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.

Base Models Embedded HP Smart Array P410i/256MB Controller (RAID 0/1/1+0/5/5+0)
Embedded HP Smart Array P410i/512 MB BBWC Controller (RAID 0/1/1+0/5/5+0)
Hope this helps!
