HP DL380 gen8 - Array Configuation Utiliy - No Raid 6 available

Hi Everyone,

 

I've just connected a HP D2600 storage device(12x2TB) to my DL380. I was hoping to configure a Raid 6 array but I don't have that option within the HP Array Configuration Utility on the server. The storage is connected to the server via a smart array p421 card which I've read supports Raid 6 configuration by default.

 

Does anyone have some advice on how to enable the Raid 6 functionality?

 

Is there a firmware update that needs to be applied?

 

Thanks in advance for any help on this topic.

RAID 6/60 is included on the P42x controllers, but only after a certain firmware revision (I think it's anything since version 4.68).

Check that you have at least 4.68 (the latest is 5.42 so you should really be using that anyway).

hi,

 

Here is it:

NOTE: HP Smart Array Advanced Pack (SAAP 2.0) is no longer required to
enable RAID 6 & 60 (Advanced Data Guarding). However, controller must be
in firmware version 4.68 (or later).

 

Thanks
