I can't create 3 logical devices in RAID 1 on ProLiant 380 Server

Dear sirs; I've got a ProLiant DL380 G6 server up to 8 SAS hard disk. This server has the Smart Array P410i controler with 6 channels; I've installed only 6 SAS disks, not 8. On array configuration I only can set 2 logical devices (4 disks) doing RAID 1; on trying do the same with the 2 following disks it says to me that it can't created more logical devices and that runs the "Hp array configuration utility" if I want create more logical devices. On operating sistem I runs the utility and it finds the other two disks, but it doesn't let me to create a new raid, it only appears a "More information" button. Whant happend? how can I create another logical device?.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for reply. Sorry, you mean that I can onlty create two raid-1?; the array controler has 6 channels, I thought that means that at least allowed work with 6 raid disks. What I have to do with the 2 disk remain? I have to buy another array controler?.
Thanks in advance.
