Similar problem report to yours

Anybody know about this issue? Any suggestion?

There have been several bug fixes and improvements made to the mfi(4) driver since 6.1 was released, including one that is supposed to fix problems with
multiple volumes.

I would suggest trying the latest 6.2-BETA and see if that works better. (It
probably will.)

We have a new Dell 2950 with 6 disks, we have verified that the bios and
raid controller firmware are up to date.

Our issue is: after creating 3, RAID 1 virtual disk groups and
initializing them we successfully install FreeBSD 6.1 on the first raid
We then create a file system on the second raid group which seems to
wipe out the FreeBSD install on the first disk group.

It seems as though FreeBSD6.1 is not differentiating between the
different disk groups thus when you make changes to 1 group it will
write the changes to the other.

Anyone have any ideas on how to get FreeBSD6.1 to differentiate between
the different virtual disk groups on a Dell 2950?
