What controllrProliant DL180 server to present disks as JBOD

Hi, what controller or addon card will allow me on a DL180Gen9 see the disks as JBOD. Meaning no 1-drive/Raid0/per_drive craziness?

I want to run Ceph and specifically I want Ceph to run the disks, not the SmartArray. 

 

thanks

The Quickspec shows the DL180 Gen9 ships with one of three controllers.  The B140i, the H240, or the P840. The B140i, disable RAID mode and use AHCI SATA mode for JBOD. The other two controllers can be put into HBA mode where the drives will be JBOD

The HBA mode (for JBOD) should be supported also on the HPE Smart Array P440/4G (726821-B21) and HPE Smart Array P440/2G (820834-B21) Controllers, both compatible with the HPE ProLiant DL180 Gen9 server.
