How about providing some useful information? You don't say what version of RHEL Linux, what brand/model of SAS controller, plugged in to what kind of interface, with what drives attached to it.

I'd suggest you get the user manuals for your controller, and read it. Check their website for installation details/drivers/etc. And since you have RHEL, you're paying for support, so I'd contact them.

There are several models of 1068. LSI's website has multiple PDF documents, going through setup and installation, and multiple LUN's.
