Hi,

So I have an onboard nvme drive to run proxmox and two regular SSD's with a raid adapter (AOC-S3908L-H8IR-16DD-O) configured for raid 1.
These two drives are meant for storage. I expected an additional drive to show up somewhere, however I can only see the onboard drive.
I've already installed proxmox on the onboard drive. Do I need to install additional drivers (https://www.supermicro.com/wdl/driver/SAS/Broadcom/3908-3916/Drivers/) or something and how would that work?

-- edit: raid 1 --

How did you look? What commands did you use? Please install lsscsi and post the output in code tags.


Using NVMe just for PVE is a bit wasteful and you know the implications of RAID0?

This is the output:

[0:1:124:0] enclosu BROADCOM VirtualSES 03 -
[N:0:6:1] disk SAMSUNG MZ1L21T9HCLS-00A07__1 /dev/nvme0n1

The raid adapter is the Broadcom one. Proxmox is installed on the Samsung drive.
 
Will do. Just a silly question, but in the bios I can check the state of the two disks under the raid adapter menu. It just says, "Unconfigured, Good". I don't see anything about a raid 1 setting. Do I have to create a virtual drive here with a raid 1 setting? It was supposed to be taken care of by the
 
Okay my bad, I had to create a virtual disk. It was supposed to be deliverd like that but it works like a charm now.
