I've got almost the same setup- 6.1 amd64 RELEASE, a 2950 with 6 drives
attached to the Perc5/I SAS Raid controller. Right now I've got the
whole thing configured as a RAID5x6 disks and it seems to be working
I was able to also create smaller RAID sets (for example, a 4 disk
RAID10) without an issue, and I did not have to remove extra drives.
Someone (on -hardware I think) mentioned that the problem recognizing
multiple virtual volumes is addressed in 6-stable, but I have not had
the chance to try it out. I will post the results if/when I do.
