ESXi not seeing SAS RAID on M1064e controller

I have above described problem, MBO in use is Intel s5000PSL , and is on HCL. I am able to see independent disks but would indeed apreciate the RAID option.Same problem repeats on ESX trial installation.

Any help on fixing the issue would be apreciated.

I assume the raid won't be supported/detected on your Esx.

There is nothing to assume. RAID is not recognized(controller is), and controller is supported, since it's a integrated part of supported MBO.

I am interested in a way to make it work fuly and not just as controller for standalone disks.

Thanks for reply ,thou.
