See whether you can take two and create a RAID 1, repeat.
See whether you can then take the two RAID 1 groups you created earlier and group them using RAID 0. If this is doable, you will have a RAID 10.

The strange part it does support RAID 10.

Can you try accessing the controller configuration during bootup?
You should see whether you can download the setup or an updated version of the IBM system management tool set.
You might be using older/outdated tools.

I suppose...

First you need create 2 groups with RAID 1 (each group with 2 disks).

After you need create a new group, using both groups created above.

yes, the concept is same

Created 2 groups with 2 disk, then put this 2 groups in to the span

then it allowed me to create Raid 10

thanks for your advise ..
