OS(OSR5.07) does not see all of 2nd drive array on 6i cltr.

DLS380,6-134gig drives,6i cltr, 2 drive arrays Raid5. Config arrays in the rsbu array
utility. Booted of SCO boot disk, loaded the ciss btlds. OSInstall saw both drives but only
24 gig of the 268gig second one. No known limits from SCO knowledge base.
Ran mkdev cipqciss, selected options but same
results.
Any ideas?

The problem is the difference in drive parms
between ORCA & ACU. ORCA sets the logical number of sectors/track at 63, whereas ACU sets it as 32. IF the MAX BOOT parameter in
ACU is enabled, the logical number of sectors/tracks is set to 63; therefor SCO OSR5.x will correctly identify the drive capacity.
