Re: Multiple RAID Configure

Should be OK.

If you want 3 RAID's. That's what you will get.
And you can use disk 8 as hot spare for all 3 Arrays.

Beware, the P400 require BBWC to run RAID 5.

Re: Multiple RAID Configure

I can't remember how many, but at least 32 Arrays.
But check the quick specs.

BBWC = Battery Backed Write Cache.
Sometimes its also called write cache enabler.
