Hi,

I am trying to create a RAID-0 array using two WD2003FYYS drives on a H700 (CentOS 5).

I go into the PERC, create the array, fast init, everything looks fine.

I boot up centos, create the label and partition in parted, exit parted.

when I do:

mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdb1 it goes for awhile and then says:

scsi 0:2:1:0: rejecting I/O to dead device
scsi 0:2:1:0: rejecting I/O to dead device
scsi 0:2:1:0: rejecting I/O to dead device
scsi 0:2:1:0: rejecting I/O to dead device
scsi 0:2:1:0: rejecting I/O to dead device
scsi 0:2:1:0: rejecting I/O to dead device
scsi 0:2:1:0: rejecting I/O to dead device
scsi 0:2:1:0: rejecting I/O to dead device
scsi 0:2:1:0: rejecting I/O to dead device
scsi 0:2:1:0: rejecting I/O to dead device
scsi 0:2:1:0: rejecting I/O to dead device
scsi 0:2:1:0: rejecting I/O to dead device
scsi 0:2:1:0: rejecting I/O to dead device
scsi 0:2:1:0: rejecting I/O to dead device
scsi 0:2:1:0: rejecting I/O to dead device
scsi 0:2:1:0: rejecting I/O to dead device
scsi 0:2:1:0: rejecting I/O to dead device

Then /dev/sdb1 vanishes until I reboot, go back into the PERC and check the array.

I've tried 3 different sets of hard drives and in different slots in the R510 and it does the same thing every time.

Has anyone had this same issue?

Thanks,
-Drew
