VMware Converter - Software RAID to ESXi Host


I understand that Vmware Converter does not support converting software RAID 1 however some posts state the latest version does but these are not supported on the official documentation.

Has anyone attempted ( successfully ) to convert ?

They way i see it I have a few options:-

1. Convert the RAID array to a single disk BEFORE converting however this is dangerous as this could lead to massive data loss.

2. Use third party tools to convert the array to a single disk...again,  dangerous.

3. Somehow 'trick' VMware converter to clone the disks  and then I can make changes to the configuration via the VM so as to not touch the physical server.

Any insight would be appreciated.
