Re: unable to configure raid 5

What's the type of your SmartArray RAID controller?

A DL180 G6 may have any of three RAID controllers:
- HP Smart Array B110i SATA RAID
- HP Smart Array P410/256MB Controller
- HP Smart Array P212/256MB Controller

The most basic model, B110i, cannot use RAID 5. It can use RAID 0, RAID 1 or RAID 10 only.

The SmartArray P models can do RAID 5.

If you use "RAID 1 + 0" for a set of 2 disks, it will be a standard RAID 1. The "+ 0" means it can be expanded later to a RAID 10 set by adding more disks in pairs.
