Use hba and raid mode simultaneously in one raid controller (p408i-p)

Hi, I only have one raid controller
And I need to raid several hard drives together to install esxi
I also need to Passthrough them to use the rest of the hard drives in vsan
Is it possible to use both modes at the same time(HBA & RAID)  ? (for example for p408i-p)
What is your proposed controller?

Thanks for the help👍

@farhadkh000, While some controllers allow mixed-mode and thus it may be technically feasible, no it is not supported:

Mixed, Passthru, HBA and RAID mode SAS or SATA IO Controller card support (53573)
