How many arrays can an HP P410i manage

Attached is a report of the P410i embedded RAID in a HP ProLiant ML350 G6 Special Server - Xeon E5620 2.4 GHz. There are currently two RAID 1 arrays on this system and I would like to configure a third RAID 1 array (2, 2TB drives in RAID 1).

I'd like to know if this P410i can manage three RAID1s. If so, is there anything besides just purchasing the two new drives, putting in the two empty drive bays and configuring them as RAID1 that I should be aware of? Thanks in advance.

If you look at the PDF you attached, you'll see that the controller supports 2 arrays, and you can attach a maximum of 4 disks to it. So you are already maxed out with it.
That's not right rindi, the report is the current configuration.

I don't know the maximum no of arrays for a P410 but the max logical disks is 64. It's certainly more than 2 though. Max logical disks and max arrays is 2 on the zero memory version of the card but you have 256MB cache so that limit does not affect you.

Just buy the disks, put them in and create a 3rd array.
Sorry, I thought that was the spec sheet of the controller!

This was the confirmation I needed. I've bought the disks and just put them it and everything is good.
