RAID 0+1 Config using 4314R Enclosures

I have six 18.2 GB 15k drives split between two 4314R enclosures (3 per enclosure). The enclosures are in turn connected to a common 5304 Smart Array adapter.

What I want is for the paired drives to be split between enclosures. That is to say: Enclosure 1, Drive 0 paired with Enclosure 2, Drive 0

With this configuration I could, in theory, lose an entire enclosure and still function.

Does the controller do this automatically or do I need to force this configuration in some way?

Thanks in advance for your help.
