How to configure a Dell SAS 5/e to work with a JBOD?

I have a Dell PowerEdge 2950 with a SAS 5/e Adapter installed.  I have a VessRAID 1840s configured and the LUN is mapped to the initiator.  The problem I am having is getting the LUN somehow mapped to the OS.  Photo 4 shows the Adapter(s) disabled by user statement at the entering of the SAS Configuration Utility.  Photo 2 and 3 show that utility detects the JBOD but shows the status is disabled.  I also have a PERC 6/i that runs my other virtual disks including the MBR.  I've looked in disk management inside Windows Server 2008 and the array does not show up.

Thanks in advance.

If I remember correctly "Adapter(s) disabled by user" just means the boot BIOS is disabled which should be fine as you're not booting from the HBA.

Well it looks like you have the SAS adapter disabled, what happens when you enable it?

How do I enable it?  Where it says disabled is grayed out do I can't change it there.

After a while the LUN appeared in disk management.
