We use this controller with ZFS. You can put it into HBA-Mode. See here: https://ahelpme.com/servers/hewlett-packard/smart-array-p440-enable-or-disable-hba-mode-using-smart-storage-administrator/ <https://ahelpme.com/servers/hewlett-packard/smart-array-p440-enable-or-disable-hba-mode-using-smart-storage-administrator/>

BUT - you can’t boot from any disk this controller is attached to.
