ML 370 G5 second disk cage - Raid question

If I span my raid array across the 2 drive cages and 2 raid controllers in the new ML370 G5 servers and want to run RAID ADG will I lose 2 or 4 disks?

Re: ML 370 G5 second disk cage - Raid question

You cannot create a hardware RAID spanning disks on 2 different controllers. You must connect each 8-disk cage to a controller and then create the RAIDs you like on each cage.

From server QuickSpces: Optional 8-bay drive cage available for maximum storage support (2nd drive bay cage will require additional SAS
controller)

For RAID 6 you need at least a HP Smart Array P400 with 512MB BBWC
