dmraid does not correctly identify disks under Promise Fasttrak TX4310

Bug #367665 reported by Paul R on 2009-04-27
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
dmraid (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: dmraid

I am running Ubuntu 8.10 (kernel 2.6.27-11-generic)
In trying to solve this I loaded the latest dmraid in testing: Version: 1.0.0.rc15-6

Using Promise Fasttrak TX4310 with 4 Seagate SATA 1.5TB drives ST31500341AS.
Booting from separate 40GB ATA disk (sda) without problem.
Unable to run dmraid as follows:

# dmraid -s
ERROR: pdc: identifying /dev/sde, magic_0: 0x2380414/0xab0409, magic_1: 0x2380414/0x0, total_disks: 0
ERROR: pdc: identifying /dev/sdd, magic_0: 0x2380414/0xaa0409, magic_1: 0x2380414/0x0, total_disks: 0
ERROR: pdc: identifying /dev/sdc, magic_0: 0x2370414/0xa90409, magic_1: 0x2370414/0x0, total_disks: 0
ERROR: pdc: identifying /dev/sdb, magic_0: 0x2370414/0xa80409, magic_1: 0x2370414/0x0, total_disks: 0
no raid disks

This occurs with any dmraid command that attempts to access the disks (-tay or -r)
Vol_id shows the following:
# vol_id /dev/sdb

I submitted this to debian as a bug, but they closed it saying it should be filed with Ubuntu first. From the debian bug report utility:

This seems to have been around since 2006 (2.6.17). I found a near identical description in Bug #67468 - unfortunately, the reporter never responded to the request to test with Intrepid 8.10 so it was closed.

Can you test with Karmic or Lucid? ;)

Also can you post the output of dmraid -n?
