    I want to set up a standalone server (HPE DL360 G9) and use storage spaces on Windows Server 2016, mainly for the auto-tiering feature since I have a mix of HDD and SSD.

    The problem is, the disks always show the dont-remove error light because they are effectively each a raid 0 array.

    Is there any (supported) way to give control of these drive status lights over to storage spaces?

    The RAID controller is a P440ar, which as far as I can tell doesnt support auto-tiering or SSD caching. Happy to be shown otherwise, as I'm more comfortable with HW RAID.

    Thanks

    Put in a SAS IT card for the drives. The only
    Issue is where do you boot from.
