Smart Array 600 setup using ORCA

Have an rx3600 with two internal drives that are to be managed by a Smart Array 600 (PCI-X) card. I'm trying to set up mirroring via
the ORCA utility; running from an HP ASCII
terminal set to VT100 mode.
I can't create a logical drive because there
is no spare drive and a logical drive already
exists. This drive is listed as having "RAID 1+0". Does this mean mirroring is already set up?
The delete logical drive option
doesn't seem to do anything, so I can't try out creating a drive from scratch.

Has anyone had sucess with this ORCA interface?
The P600 card is at Fwr rev. 1.52.

"This drive is listed as having "RAID 1+0". "

This indicates a configured RAID.

ORCA should work, but it is easier to connect a VGA screen and keyboard to use this tool.

Because the HBA is only supported with Win and linux, the use of a VGA console make sense here, see

http://docs.hp.com/en/SM_SA3/SA_Support_Matrix.htm

Maybe the manual helps:

Hope this helps!

Re: Smart Array 600 setup using ORCA

I may be better off running ORCA
in command line interface (CLI) mode on
my ASCII terminal - the installed core IO board, AB436-60004, is without VGA.

Seems that RAID 1 is set up automatically by the HBA when only two drives are present.
Thanks Torsten, for confirming that no further action is really necessary.
