p400 driver sector count reported as 0

Running Solaris 10 (11/06) on DL380G5 server
Firmware updated with Maint CD v7.90
Smart Array P400 driver at v4.06

Attempting to create a Filesystem on a RAID5 group of 5-146GB drives using command.....
newfs -v -s5000 /dev/rdsk/c1t1d0p0

reports.....
Warning: the requested size of this file system
(5000 sectors) is greater than the size of the
device reported by the driver (0 sectors).
However, a read of the device at the requested size
does succeed, so the requested size will be used.
newfs: construct a new filesystem /dev/rdsk/c1t1d0p0: (y/n)? y

After confirming with a "Y" the command appears to create the requested filesystem.

Is this an expected (0 sector) reponse for this type of configuration?
Could this indicate a hardware fault in the P400?
How are we able to determine the correct sector value to enter in order to use the full capacity?

Thanks in advance
