Cannot see RAID5 Array on HP Storageworks MSA60 under RHEL 5.5

We just bought HP Storageworks MSA60 with 7.3TB RAID5 preconfigured. After connection to HP Proliant DL580 G5 server with RHEL 5.5 I can see Array under Array config utility : Logical Drive 1 (7.3 TB, RAID 5) status OK, Smart Array P212 in Slot 11 status OK, SAS Array A - 1 Logical Drive(s) status info.

Access name       /dev/cciss/c1d0

Status messages       Description
786      Background parity initialization is currently queued or in progress on Logical Drive 1 (7.3 TB, RAID 5). If background parity initialization is queued, it will start when I/O is performed on the drive. When background parity initialization completes, the performance of the logical drive will improve.

parted -l give me
Error: Unable to open /dev/cciss/c1d0 - unrecognised disk label.

Any advise to create and mount new disk under RHEL 5.5???

Thank you

It is not paritioned/labeled.

parted /dev/cciss/c1d0

Create the partitions you want, use mkfs.<file_system_type>
etc.
Once you are done with this, you can mount the newly created/formated partitions.
