Smart Array P410

Smart Array P410

We have a Proliant DL180 G6 with the P410 card with 256mb cache. We have a pair of 176GB drives that we wish to set up as RAID 0 + 1 and five 1T drives that we wish to set up as RAID 5. We're running Win 2008 Enterprise X64. We used the configuration utility to set up the drives. When we installed Windows, it allowed the C:\ drive to use the 176G pair, but when trying to configure two logical drives from the RAID 5, it would only make one, leaving about 2T of drive unusable. Viewing the details shows HD bays 1 thru 4 on port 1 and HD bays 5 thru 7 on port 2.

What do we need to do to configure 2 logical drives from the RAID 5 array?

Re: Smart Array P410

Looks like I found my answer! I'm a database developer and have not much experience with this, but I configured the RAID 5 array to have TWO logical drives and then Windows quit complaining, Sheesh...
