ESXi Virtualization, Drivepool and a RAID only controller



I have a new server and Im trying to pass data from the old server to the new but Im having some issues on how to configure it regarding Drivepool....

See in the old server, I made a RDM passthru of the drives to ESXi and then directly in the VM, connected the drives. The drives were seen perfectly by the VM and then I just went on with the typical Drivepool configuration...

In the new server, RDM passthru is not possible.....The only way to semi do it is make a RAID0 of each drive, pass those RAIDs to the VM, and then use that. The VM sees a H700 RAID Drive....Not the actual drive. I can make a storage pool and it works....

I want to ask Drivepool what would be the recommended action to take. 

Thank you
