So I was setting up a new HP Microserver G8 and wanted to give XCP-NG a try. This is the first time I was going for a Hypervisor OS on a server, since I am using Windows Server on all the others (yes I know, yadda yadda).
I know the Micro G8 has a software raid card with propietary closed source drivers from HP and thus it’s widely not supported overall. Since I want to do the raid in XCP-NG anyway, I turned it off in the BIOS and set it to “SATA AHCI SUPPORT”.
The problem is, that XCP is still not detecting my 4 hard drives once booted. I installed the OS on a 64GB SD-Card, which i put in the ILO Slot and it’s only recognizing that one. During install I am able to select one of those 4 doe and when running “fdisk -l” i am also able to see them.
Any idea how to solve this? Currently I switched to Proxmox which has no issues detecting the drives and creating a ZFS Raid on it.
