intel 82801fr sata raid controller

I have two 80 GB disks installed in our ProLiant ML310 G2 with the above raid controller.
They are in anrray with raid 1, installed in slot 0 and 1.
Is it possible to add two more disks (to slot 2 and 3) to set up an new array with the two disks?
How should it be done?

Re: intel 82801fr sata raid controller

This is the integrated SATA controller isn't it? The quickspecs for the ML310 G2 server mention the SATA controller.

However there is something inconsistent in the quickspecs.

in the "At A Glance" section, they mention "four channel SATA controller"

in the "Storage Controllers" section they mention that "Integrated SATA RAID functionality supports 2 hard drives".

in the "Maximum Internal Storage" section they mention
"Hot Plug SATA (3.5") 2.0TB 4 x 500GB SATA"
"Non-Hot Plug SATA 320GB 4 x 80GB SATA"

in the "Models" section they mention several times
"Storage Controller Four port Integrated SATA Controller"
"Hard Drives None ship standard (up to 4 hot plug SATA or SAS drives supported)"

The service guide shows 4 SATA disks with cabling on page 47 (non hot plug).

I would think 4 SATA drives are supported. After you install them you have to use the raid configuration utility to configure them. See the user guide on pages 64-66

If you have ACU installed, you can use it as well to configure the drives. After you configure the drives you will see a new disk that you can partition and format in the OS.
