Dell PowerVault/PERC specific - Step-by-Step Shared array

Does anyone have a link or general instructions for setting up a shared 200S SCSI Powervault array between two PERC cards (I have both PERC2/DC and PERC3/DC cards available to me, so the PERC model doesn't matter so much).  I have done it before with two PERC2s in PE 2450s, but that was a long time ago, and for the life of me I cannot reproduce it.

I have the jumpers on the array set to "FORCE JOINED," the PERCs are set to cluster.  One side of the array is going to Channel 1 on the first server, and other side is going to Channel 1 on the second server.  But, I cannot get the PERCs to see the array, or I can get one PERC to see the array and the other can't.  Is there a bootup procedure I am missing, i.e. one server gets powered up while the other is off?

Nevermind, I found the solution.  Apparently you HAVE to use Initiator IDs 6 and 7.  I had tried using 7 and 8, and it didn't work.
