MSA1000 with Red Hat AS 3.0 (update 4, ITANIUM)

Hello!
This is what I`m trying to do, i have 2 rx2600 servers, and 1 MSA1000, I would like to set two units on the storage (3 disks of 72.8 for unit 0 and 2 disks of 72.8 for unit 1). By using acl rules on the storage, each server will only have access to 1 unit. I`ve no problem creating the units usin the CLI interface, the problem is that the Linux sees the storage as one disks of 364Gb instead of two units...Before installing the Red Hat AS 3.0, I was runing the 2.1 version, after some updates we were able to mount the storage and use it, but we always saw it as one disks of 364GB. I tried to use the Array configuration utility, with the RHAS 2.1 version was able to install the cpqacuxe package (with the message shown above)
# rpm -ivh cpqacuxe-7.15-21.linux.rpm

********************************************************
WARNING: The version of cpqarray driver should be
greater than or equal to 2.4.25.
If you have cpqarray controllers,
please upgrade your cpqarray driver for proper
functionality of Array Configuration Utility.
********************************************************

the I executed the cpqacuxe -R command to allow remote conections (http://192.168.1.44:2301), I logged in, but the I tried to run the "array configuration utlity", another windows pops up but it says that the software couldn`t find a controller... That`s why I updated to RHAS3.0, this time I was able to see the Storage since the intallation proccess, I downloaded the cpqacuxe-6.41-2.0.ia64.rpm package from the hp website (the server only lets me install this package). in this version of cpqacuxe, it doesn`t have the -R or -d option....I don't have a clue how to execute it and get up the 2301 port so I can connect to the web application.....

# cpqacuxe
Array Configuration Utility version 6.41.2.0
The Array Configuration Utility (ACU) allows you to configure and manage your storage through a web browser.
Server Mode Usage:
cpqacuxe
Options: (use one only)
-h, --help Show this page.
-v Show version information.

Scripting Mode Usage:
cpqacuxe
Options: (use one only)
-c Capture configuration to a script file. Default file is acucapt.ini.
-i Input configuration from a script file. Default file is acuinput.ini.
See ACU documentation for script file syntax.


Note:
Make sure that you have gone through the following checklist:
1. Change the administrator password to something other than
the default.
2. Only run ACU on servers that are on a local intranet
or a secure network.
3. Secure the management port (port 2301 or 2381)
on your network.


Thank you
Luis Torres

Did you ever figure this out? I am having the same problem.
