Physical volume for RAID missing in Ubuntu 16.04.4

Anonymous asked:

I am trying to configure software RAID 1 on ubuntu 16.04.4, but the option “physical volume for RAID” is missing during the disk partitioning process.. Does anyone have a solution for that issue?
Noting that the server that we are using is HP Proliant DL380 Gen 10 and the the raid controller is S100i
Thank you.

My answer:

The HPE Smart Array S100i software RAID controller is a Windows-only controller which is not supported in Linux. To run Linux, you will need to replace it with another Smart Array controller. The HPE Smart Array Gen10 Controllers Data Sheet shows which controllers are supported in Linux — which is literally every other controller but that one.
