Install HPUX 11v3 on RAID6 Array fail

Hi all.
I have a rx2660 with P400 controller. When i create array ADG (RAID6) with 8 HDD SAS 300GB and install HP UX v3 on this array, system had fail:

* Loading configuration utility...
* Beginning installation from source: /dev/dsk/c3t0d0
======= 11/25/09 04:48:46 EST Starting system configuration...
* Configure_Disks: Begin
NOTE: The physical_extent_size for volume group: vg00 exceeded its maximum of 256MB. Will reduce max_physical_vols from 16 to
12.
* Will install B.11.31 onto this system.
class : disk, instance 1
The IO start offset is beyond the device block size. dev=0xd000001 IO blkno = 0xe8c3161d

pvcreate: "/dev/rdisk/disk1_p2": not a character device.
ERROR: Command "/sbin/pvcreate -f -B /dev/rdisk/disk1_p2" failed.

The configuration process has incurred an error, would you like
to push a shell for debugging purposes? (y/[n]):


But when i try create array 1 with 2 HDD, the installation is ok.

Please talk me what happen?
Thank you very much.

Re: Install HPUX 11v3 on RAID6 Array fail

Did you configure the RAID6 as a single logical drive? It's likely more than 2TB in size. This may cause the problem and is IMHO much too large anyway.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
