Hi,

You'll need to use the HWE kernel on 16.04, support for that generation RAID card didn't land until later in the cycle, around the 4.10 kernel time.

Alternately, if you're already using 16.04 HWE (which is the 4.15 kernel) you could also use 18.04 GA which is also the 4.15 kernel.

Cheers
Jeff
