How to configure P410i RAID controller?

We purchased an HP ML350 G6 server with a P410i RAID controller. I have 4 drives to setup as a RAID 5 configuration but cannot figure out how to do this. There's no RAID setup utility when the system boots. I checked the BIOS and it shows the RAID controller as the primary boot device. The drives are installed and there are green lights but no RAID config option. Where/how do I do this?

Try SmartStart CD that should have come with the server (inside ProLiant Essentials Foundation Pack). There should be an array configuration utility available somewhere in there.

Use ORCA or the ACU.
(Or let it do it automatacally)

First tim you boot a Proliant with a Smart Array Ctrl. and unconfigured disks.

It will confiure RAID automatically. Unless you hit esc at the prompt.

ORCA - Hit F8 when prompted at the Smart Array discovery during post.

ACU - Boot on the Smart Start CD and Choose the maintenance tab.
Run the ACU.

On a running system just open the ACU (On-line)

I found the CD and used that. Thanks. There was no documentation with the server about the RAID and the online docs do not explain the configuration process.

The configuration is now complete. I appreciate your info.

You're welcome.

I would expect the manual to be provided with the server, from factory, on a CD.

But you can find them on www.hp.com

You need to visit the support page and search the downloads for the appropriate OS. Support page for DL360 G6 is

http://h20566.www2.hpe.com/portal/site/hpsc/public/psi/home/?sp4ts.oid=3884319

Click the "Get drivers, software & firmware." link, select your OS and search for the Array Configuration Utility which may be listed under Storage Controller or System Management. It's there for Windows Server at least.
