Dear Experts:

I have recently joined new company, here the server is HP 380 G5 rack server is with 05nos of 146 GB SAS hardisks with rhel5 installed. Sysadmin says on this hardware raid 0+5 is installed but when I execute the command
#fdisk -l

Disk /dev/cciss/c0d0: 293.5 GB, 293560243200 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 35690 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

           Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/cciss/c0d0p1   *           1         102      819283+  83  Linux
/dev/cciss/c0d0p2             103       12850   102398310   83  Linux

To check which RAID you have on your system, you should go in the BIOS of RAID card. where you can find RAID Levels as well as you can check all drives as well.

SO you have left your earlier co. where you were going to purchase some storage and new servers.

It's most likely got a Smart Array P400 but it doesn't matter much, boot the SmartStart CD that came with it and under maintenance select the array configuration utility, that'll tell all you need to know about whart RAID level you've got, by the sound of the capacities you've got 3 disks in RAID 5 and 2 unused.

The systems management homepage which the support pack will install will also tell you) via the ACU).
