I can just say that I was lucky that by coincidence I bought a D2700 and a P822 + P830 as this solves all negative aspects on my HP DL385P Gen8 with 8 Bays.

You can also reboot and view the array configuration from the BIOS utility or by launching the ...
It looks like raid 1 with a hot spare. The HP array tools should be available for Linux from the HP website, depending on distro.
