ML370 G5 array config...need to expand

Current config is one drive bay filled: 2 x 72gb, RAID 1, for the OS. Six 146GB drives, RAID-5, for storage. I need to add disks to the RAID-5 to increase capacity. I've gathered that I need to add another P400 controller and drive cage. How can I keep the existing RAID-5 config and expand onto the 2nd drive cage? Is it possible to add 3 disks to new cage and P400 controller, create another RAID-5, and span the logical drive across the two RAID-5 arrays?

hi
you can not expand your storage with two conrooler. you can create another array with new controller and use.
