878783-B21 + E208i-A SR on DL380 Gen10

Hi to all

I need configure 2 nodes DL380Gen10 P24844-B21 with 24Hdd and 824i-P as Virtual San.

I need also install vMware on boot disck using 878783-B21 UNIVERSAL SATA HH M.2 KIT . The problem is that this controller don't permit boot in mirroring with vMware.

Can I solve this problem mounting a 208i-a SR as indipendent controller and connectoing Universal Sata on this one?

Thanks

Hi @878783-B21 

24Hdd with P824i-P is fine, but 

M.2 SATA drives are managed through Software raid controllers only(S100i) for Raid mode or SATA AHCI mode.(non raid/JBOD)

So connecting M.2 SATA with E208i-a may not work i.e Raid mode :Raid1, however since controller will be in Mixed mode it may allow to install OS in HBA mode :without raid/Jbod)

I did not see any document which indicate E208i support M.2 SATA drives so cant confirm whether it will allow you to create Raid 1.
