Comment 5 Harald Hoyer 2010-04-28 02:37:01 EDT
most probable an mdadm udev rules issue..
Comment 6 Doug Ledford 2010-05-25 17:18:57 EDT
Beta1 included mdadm-3.1.1-0.gcd9a8b5.5.el6.  This is a known issue with that version of mdadm that was fixed in mdadm-3.1.2.  Current snapshots include mdadm-3.1.2-10.el6 and are known to resolve this issue.
