MSA20 w/ Smart Array 6404

Hello Community,


 Please excuse my lack of understand, I am trying to learn as I go. I have an MSA20 with the 6404 Controller that is hooked up to a DL360 currently. I am trying to use freenas which uses zfs. Do I need any other equipment besides what I have already to have the MSA20 act only as a JBOD so I can use zfs and not the hardware raid? Any help would be greatly appricated.

Hi, AFAIK you cannot get raw access to the disks.

They need to be presented as an array.

I guess you could create many RAID0 arrays with one disk in each.
