Windows 2016 Storage Pool Issue

I installed 2 Physical servers running Windows Std 2016 x64.  I installed the Failover Cluster  and File and Storage features.  I have a number of  physical drives between these two servers.  on File and Storage Services - Volumes-Storage Pools the "Primordial" sees only 1 disk and not the other 5.  The other 5 are shown in disk management and Under File and Storage Services -Volumes-Disks but they are not showing up under Storage pool.  I have attached a few snagits.  Ive run Get-Physicaldisk in Powershell and it shows 7 drives as CanPool = True and Healthy.  How do I get these drives added to the Storage Pool?

Storage pools CANNOT be created on RAID arrays. Your second image, near the far right. Where disk type is "RAID."  That's your problem. The enclosure and HBA you use MUST both support presenting SAS disks directly to the OS. When that column says "SAS" you should good to go.
