If they are 11G servers (PowerEdge XX1X, i.e. something like a PowerEdge R610). You can also look into our embedded remote configuration capabilities.

These are documented here:

DTK could be very handy in such case. DTK Linux ISO image can be
downloaded from 
DTK tool raidcfg provides a command line to replicate raid configuration
specified in an INI file.

raidcfg command to create INI file is raidcfg -i=\tmp\raid.ini.

DTK CLI guide should have more information, in case you are interested.

Is there any chance I could setup automatically 20x perc/6i to have
raid1 instead of raid5? Something like bootable CD or even better -
bootable via PXE. It needs to be unattended or minimal intervention. 

I'm thinking about using some live linux distro with OMSA(I know that
there is Centos) and script it to do what I want but I'm guessing that
someone has done it already. 

Thanks in advance!
