ML370 G5 multiple arrays

Dear All,

Is it possible to configure the following raids to operate concurrently on the server?

1 - RAID 10 array with 10 disks
2 - raid 1 array with 2 disks
3 - raid 1 array with 2 disks

I know that i will need an additional hard disk cage and the p400/512 controller, but is it possible to do?

Hi, 1) is not possible.

The second disk cage is connected to the second SmartArray P400. Each P400 has the control of 8 disks.

You cannot create a RAID with some disks on one controller and some disks on the other.

So a disk cage can be connected to one controller at a time?

if so, what do u recommend i do?

Each controller has 2 ports, in each port you can connect up to 4 disks, so it's 8 disks per controller.
