I have an HP Proliant DL360 G6 server with 8 HD bays. Currently I have the first two bays working with ESXi and I'm just running RAID 0 on a single drive. This is not a production machine. It has a P410i Controller. I'm trying to add a third drive to machine and when I go into the controller menu at boot time and select "Create Logical Drive" it says I've reached the max of 2 logical drives. I was under the impression I could many more logical drives than just 2? I'm not a server admin by any means, so this is definitely not my strength, but any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.


Similar to this issue, you need to have a cache memory module on your RAID controller in order to have more than 2 logical drives on a Smart Array P410 setup.
