HP PRoliant G4p ML350 - adding disks

Hi,

I have got a ML350 with two HP HD/146GB U320SCSI 10000rpm H-Plug (286716-B22) in a RAID1 config using a Smart Array 621 controller.
I have 4 slots remaining.

If I buy another 4 disks (same type), what options do I have regarding the remaining 4 slots, for instance, due to the dual channel controller, can I use the remaining 4 slots/disks in a RAID5 config for data, leaving the RAID1 as is?

Thanks
SF

Yes you can do that. I have a ML370 and I'm using 5 Disks. 2 in Raid 1 for the OS and 3 in Raid 5 for the data. You just add the drives and during boot, watch carefully when it ask to configure controller (I think it's CTRL-F8 but I'm not 100% sure). Then, you create a new Raid 5 array with the disk that the controller detect.
