DL380 G6 - Raid 5 is not available in ORCA

I have new DL380 G6 and I am trying to config the array before I install the OS. I have 3 pre installed 2.5 SAS 246GB drives, but the only option available is raid 0? It shows raid 1+0, but I can not use it. Raid 5 is not shown at all. Why would this be?

Hi!

Do you have an BBWC attatched to your array controller? I think you going to need one to get RAID5 working.

Hi,


Storage Controller detail:
Entry Models: HP Smart Array P410i/Zero Memory Controller (RAID 0/1/1+0)
Base Models: HP Smart Array P410i/256 MB Controller (RAID 0/1/1+0/5/5+0)
Performance Models: HP Smart Array P410i/512 MB BBWC Controller (RAID 0/1/1+0/5/5+0)

Battery Kit upgrade : 462969-B21
NOTE: This is an option for the HP Smart Array P410i Controller (P410i is standard integrated controller).
NOTE: To enable BBWC on the 256MB cache on P410i.

No I don't think that I do. How much does that cost?

Check with your local dealer.

We are buying them for around 300 dollars the 512MB version. (462967-B21 HP 512MB P-Series BBWC Upgrade)
