I'm pretty sure your device requires the kmod-mpt3sas driver from elrepo 
(not EPEL!), but would need to see the pci device id (from 'lspci -nn') 
to be sure.

If you are installing to this device, disk ISO images for the driver are 
available for use at install time:


Make sure you pick the image that matches the point release you are 
installing (e.g, el8.0, el8.1, el8.2 etc).
