Proxmox backup ZFS is not compatible with disks backed by a hardware RAID controller.

On an Asus rs300-e6/ps2 server we have installed the Proxmox Backup operating system on two hard drives in ZFS Raid 1 format. To do this, we deactivate the Raid mode of the controller in the Bios, so far so good.
Once started, we have three other hard drives that we want to use for copies, but when we go to use them this notice appears and they do not appear to select. They do not have a Raid mounted by Hardware, even if it indicates Linux_raid_member. How can we solve it to install them with a ZFS? In what mode should the controller be put?

Best regards.

Hi, That was it, these albums were previously on a Nas and that's why they had a Raid format, what a mistake. Thank you
