The controller model for that hardware can be found via the HP QuickSpecs technical specifications page. A quick search for "ML350 G6 quickspecs" reveals the quickspecs PDF and HTML pages for your server model.

All variants of the ProLiant ML350 G6 server used HP Smart Array P410 RAID controllers by default.

great, helped a lot. I have updated my question, so basically I have P410/512 MB BBWC? – John Oct 1 '13 at 16:17
Could I use Array Configuration Utility to expand array? I believe I can.. – John Oct 1 '13 at 16:47
Yes, that is correct. – ewwhite Oct 1 '13 at 16:51

You can use the HP Array Configuration Utility. It should show you the model of the card installed and the current configuration. If you used the SmartStart CD to do an assisted install of windows, it should have been installed as part of the setup processes. Otherwise, it can be downloaded and installed separately.

You should be able to see the model of the card during the bootup sequence as well.
