RHEL4 RAID issues on DL145G2

I installed RHEL4 AMD64, update 1 on a DL145G2. Install was normal, but during patch installs and subsequent testing, I received:
=============
EXT3-fs error (device dm-0) in start_transaction: Journal has aborted
EXT3-fs error (device dm-0) in start_transaction: Journal has aborted
scsi0 (0:0): rejecting I/O to offline device
scsi0 (0:0): rejecting I/O to offline device
EXT3-fs error (device dm-0) in start_transaction: Journal has aborted
EXT3-fs error (device dm-0) in start_transaction: Journal has aborted
=====================
This made files "disapear" or become no read permisions. I removed what i thought was the offending drive (2 drives were factory pre-raided") and re-installed. System was more stable, but eventually got the same problem.
Re-installed RHEL4 (base, no update 4, did not apply any kernel patches, keeping rev to 2.6.9-5. System has now been up 6 days with no problems (still on 1 disk)

I notice there are RHEL4 RAID/disk drivers from HP on this site, but nothing listed for the DL145. What is the proper set of drivers/versions for RHEL4?
thanks,
Rod

Re: RHEL4 RAID issues on DL145G2

This script checks software raid.


/bin/cat /proc/mdstat
mdadm -D /dev/md0
mdadm -D /dev/md1
mdadm -D /dev/md2
mdadm -D /dev/md3
mdadm -D /dev/md4
mdadm -D /dev/md5
# mdadm -D /dev/md6
# mdadm -D /dev/md7
# mdadm -D /dev/md8
# mdadm -D /dev/md9
# note raidtoadd /dev/md0 /dev/hdb1 # disk that is not in use

/bin/cat /proc/mdstat

Adjust it to your actual setup.

I am using software raid in production with no similar issues, though my servers are from Dell.
