DL360 G6 RAID expansion with 2nd cabinet

I have HP Proliant DL360 G6 with Smart Array P410 1GB FBWC. I have both disk cabinets connected to P410 (2x 4-disk bays). I have 4 disks of 600GB installed in Cabinet A and configured as RAID-6.

 

Question:

If I add next 4 of 600GB disks filling up cabinet B - will I be able to expand this RAID-6 with these disks or I can only set up new RAID-6 array ?

 

1st option is more resonable, because then I will loose only 2 disks for error correction (effective storage will be than 6x 600GB not 2x 2x 600GB).

 

Can anybody answer me with that doubts ?

If all drives are connected to the same Smart Array controller then you can expand the array to add the additional drives
