Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Which Linux distribution are you using? Are you certain that it supports the RAID controller (IBM uses mostly LSI Logic chipsets if I’m not mistaken)?

When you said that you configured RAID1, what did you do? Did you actually create a logical volume and initialize it? Did you confirm that the disks in the LV were synched or synching?

    Make sure your raid controller is listed in the RHES 4 hardware compatibility list (HCL).
