Yes, I've done all that. It turns out that a very helpful fellow from Dell 
weighed in and took a look at the controller alert logs, and saw a fatal 
firmware error that I missed. It looks like the Perc firmware may be 
corrupted. I am going to reflash the controller firmware, and if that 
doesn't fix it, replace the Perc.
