dsm only supports non raid controller in HBA mode or IT mode

there seemed always to be some problems with the hpsa driver too

maybe try this to switch the controller in hba mode

or use a more common/supported hba like sas2008 based cards (lots of oem cards for cheap, need to be flashed into IT mode, not IR mode)

on normal systems a sata/ahci controller would be suggested but as you want/need to use your sas backplane ...

the generic one is LSI 9211-8i

 

if the hp controller is in raid mode you could define every single disk as a raid0, but that would make it hard to distinguish between disks when one fails

 

or you use a hypervisor like esxi or proxmox, that way you can use the controller the normal raid way and have the storage virtual to dsm
