Hi All,

I have a RHEL server and I have a strange problem with my disks.

I have plugged two new disks but I don´t have made a RAID with them. If I
reboot the machine I see the four disks detected but I don´t get a device

Ah, right. Let me guess: a PERC controller, or some hardware HBA? Are all
of the drives on the HBA bus? Based on my recent experience with Dell
boxen with PERC (6 and 7) controllers, you cannot see a drive until you
create it at least as a virtual drive of RAID 0.
