HP has a qualified SAS expander card for this, the online specs say 24 drives max with expander and you need they "Smart Array Advanced Pack license key (ADG)" + BBU for RAID6

No, they fully revealed it ... blame the MARKETING people who want you to buy a different controller instead. They are the ones that decided to hide it ;)
