DL380 G5 and Dual Channel RAID

Greetings,

Does anybody know if it is possible to run dual channels RAID SAS, i.e. 2 x RAID 1, on a standard DL380 G5 config with the built-in P400 SAS controller?

I noticed that the P400 has 2 SAS cables connected to the built-in drive cage.

Basically, I am looking at a solution, preferably an ML350 or DL380 or lower to run dual RAID 1 with 4 hard disks.

Thank you for any information.

Hello,

As per
http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/proliantstorage/arraycontrollers/smartarrayp400/index.html

P400 has 8 SAS ports/Channels

Hence, I would think, this configuration can be achieved.

James,

Yes in theory that will work but I am trying to get a confirmation that this is in fact the case.

There are no document that mention this at all which is strange and none of the HP channels had been able to give me a definate answer.

I simply cannot go and buy a DL380 G5 and found that I cound not do what I want...

Thanks.
