of a Compaq smart Array, I get the following arror.
[root@rainier /root]# mkfs /dev/ida/c0d2p6
mke2fs 1.18, 11-Nov-1999 for EXT2 FS 0.5b, 95/08/09

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mkfs /dev/ida/c0d2p6
Compaq Proliant 7000
Smart Array 3100ES Controller
Kernel 2.2.14-5 smp
Have you tried this with the errata kernel (2.2.19-6.2.7)?
I need additional feedback to fully assess this bug. Please provide.
closed due to lack of additional feedback, and the likelihood that newer
errata kernels have fixed the problem.
