I don't actually see anything wrong. What makes you think something is wrong?
Wait for the plex to finish the "init" state and then do "vinum start raid".
There may be another step in there somewhere, such as "vinum start raid.p0",
but I'm not 100% sure.
It can take a bit of time to init 298G of raid 5.
