The array was created on the Promise card.  If there is a bad disk, any
ideas on why FreeBSD would report two arrays with each disk appearing as
READY on one of either of them?

kernel: ar0: disk1 READY (mirror) using ad6 at ata3-master
kernel: ar1: disk0 READY (master) using ad10 at ata5-master

Thanks for the responses,
