You can use the NWipe utility to access the core DBaN functionality from any Linux distribution. Running NWipe from a Live CD is often easier than trying to get DBaN to work.

comment replace controller, add second controller, or use expander?
+1 Adding a P410 is definitely the easiest solution. The only real reason to do otherwise is if you have to group more than 8 of the drives into a single array.

comment Can't enter HP SmartArray P410 RAID ORCA set-up on HP ProLiant DL320G6
@Ivan- After pressing a key, did you see the POST banner from the Smart Array controller at all? It should appear after the iLO banner and will display the slot number and firmware revision. If you're not quick to dismiss the splash screen as soon as you get the option, it's easy to miss the controller's prompt.

comment Smart Array P212 Raid controller on SBS 2008 ProLiant G6
@user132760- The battery is in a black plastic housing and is connected to the controller by a cable. If you pop the cover on your system, you should be able to tell fairly easily if there's a battery attached. You can also also get battery status information from ACU (see the Smart Array user's guide for details).

comment HP StorageWorks MSA60 SAS attached enclosure: how to manage online on Windows?
The configuration utility on the SmartStart CD is the same ACU that you're running under Windows. The only difference is that the CD version doesn't have any notion of account privileges or permissions. There's probably something subtle in your system's configuration that is causing a permissions issue. I'm looking at a test system with pretty much the same hardware setup as yours and I'm seeing the full set of ACU options.
