Same issue on a T300 here, while all other servers with perc6
controllers (pe2950's) don't have the issue.

I tried this workarround, which worked before on other servers :

yum remove srvadmin-*
rm -Rf /opt/dell
yum install srvadmin-all dell_ft_install

the servers is updated to the latest centos5.5 kernel.
