DL380 G5 and SAS Controller woes

I bought two identical 380 G5s with 5 146 MB drives each. Put two drives in 1,0 Raid for the OS (Win2000 Adv) and 4 in RAID 5. Works great for about two weeks then the internal SAS raid controller blends the two logical drives into on and my systems start rebooting. They went down within 24 hours of each other with identical problem. Is there ROM update to fix this for these servers? Are they too new to be stable?

One note, that should have been six drives in each maching, 2 in the first mirror and 4 in Raid 5

Re: DL380 G5 and SAS Controller woes

In the SMH (System Management Homepage) under the Smart Array P400, look at the physical drives themselves. Are there any SCSI Bus Faults, Other Timeouts, etcetera listed for the physical drives?
