New ProLiant ML350 G6 server question

I'm looking at purchasing a new ML350 G6 LFF server and am getting confused with the embedded P410i array. The server I checked out on HP's small business site (600425-005) comes with the P410i/256MB array controller that says it can handle up to a RAID 5 configuration. While looking on this forrum I saw someone saying you needed a license to setup and use a RAID 5, 5+0, 6 or 6+0. Is this correct? Thanks!

Hello,
check quickspecs at http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/13241_div/13241_div.HTML .
For your P410i is stated:

RAID Support RAID 6, 6+0 (Advanced Data Guarding)
NOTE: The minimum of 256 MB cache, battery kit, and Smart Array Advanced Pack License Key upgrade is required to enable RAID 6, 6+0
RAID 5, 5+0 (Distributed Data Guarding)
NOTE: The 256 MB is required to enable RAID 5, 5+0 support of the Smart Array P410i
RAID 1+0 (Striping & Mirroring)
RAID 0 (Striping)

SO, if you need raid6 and 6+0, you need additional Advanced Pack Licence.
For raid 5 and 5+0 you just need ram (enough in your planned config)
