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.
