unRAID does not support SAS3?

hello, I have a motherboard from ASROCK Z87 Extreme11/ac the special is it has 16 x SAS3 which I would like to use. But unRAID has to somehow have a problem with the SAS controller. I can only connect one HDD or SSD to one of 16x SAS. As soon as I want to connect another HDD or SSD, unRAID will not find them. If I connect the HDD / SSD to one of the 6x SATA, unRAID can see the HDD / SSD. What am I doing wrong?

I'm not familiar with that hardware but you must have it configured as JBOD and not any RAID mode.

"configured as JBOD and not any RAID mode" would be in your motherboard's BIOS.

I can not find anything, if I leave this as here I can Synology all HDD's / SSD under SAS3 find and create JBOD.

Looks like 6 SATA ports are on the z87 chipset and should work straight away.
The other 16 go through an onboard LSI SAS 3008 which looks like it needs to be flashed to IT mode (if possible) to be suitable for use with unRAID.

 

Found another thread on the same board.

Post your diagnostics like johnnie asked, we can take a look at that and might get a hint as to what is happening, then be able to direct you from there.  Though it sounds like that other guy that flashed to IT mode wasn't able to get it to work either...
