RHEL3.0 on CL380 doens't recognize shared storage

I'm trying to install RHEL3.0 on CL380 [2 * DL380 + CR3500 storage = old Proliant packaged cluster]

The problem is : RHEL doesn't see disks on shared storage. I found several discussions about similar problems, but most of them speak about problem with identical host's scsi id on both hosts; and I use only one node for now.

any ideas? [I have RHEL3.0 upd3, sym53c8xx module]
Below is /proc/scsi/scsi file:
Attached devices:
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 02 Lun: 00
Vendor: Compaq Model: CR3500 Rev: x2q
Type: Unknown ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 03 Lun: 00
Vendor: Compaq Model: CR3500 Rev: x2q
Type: Unknown ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Host: scsi3 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
Vendor: COMPAQ Model: BD0096349A Rev: 3B12
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Host: scsi3 Channel: 00 Id: 01 Lun: 00
Vendor: COMPAQ Model: BD0096349A Rev: 3B12
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02

thanks in advance,
Vitaly

If there is no problem with the scsi itsel then the issue here usuallyis that the shared storage needs to be setup prior to the OS install.

Almost every Compaq Server I've ever touched has a storage configuration cd/disk downloadable somwehere in hp/compaq webland. You make that bootable cd, boot the server off of it, set up the storage raid 0 1, 5 whatever, then you shutdown restart and boot off of the OS cd.

Thats whats worked for me.

Vitaly,

Did you ever resolve this problem. We are encountering the same symptons on the same config and we have gotten nowhere with Redhat support. Any clues would be greatly appreciated !
