Another individual had contacted me yesterday from dell through the list and explained what I had done wrong. The disk itself appears to be fine, but my command parameters for "disk remove dead_partitions" was incorrect. I was missing a zero.
I appreciate the help, it is up and happy now.
I am concerned as this is not the first 2500 with RedHat to do this on me. I am systematically converting a 10 location Microsoft shop over to Linux. I have just finished the first two and in both situations the drive failed (not physical disk) with in two weeks of the install. The fist server I was able to take care of with the container scrub command.
I haven't lost my confidence, as I have used Perc in NetWare and NT environments several times over the last 4 years. But I am concerned with the linux module.
I will continue to work with aacraid and patiently educate myself on its ins and outs. Suggestions are welcome.
