I would suggest splitting the backplane on the pv. I think it is just a switch on the back. Then it will essentially be 2 separate jbods.

I'll try that, thanks!
I also used uDev rules to create symlink in the /dev directory. I'll
then use this devices ( /dev/internal_disk )  instead of /dev/sda.

There's no remote control card on those servers ... unfortunatly.
By "managing the PV" I meant that I'll plug 2 PE on 1 PV and I need to
have only one RAID configuration.
I want to create 2 Logical Drives ... do I've to configure each PE ??
I'm afraid there's no RAID controler on PV ! :-(
