This is a possibility. I will have to check out the other server hanging

We do have support on the box, but don't purchase a RHEL license and we
run CentOS instead

I will try the lvmdiskscan, but vgscan only sees the currently running
disk. Problem is, if I put it back into the Perc then it will want to
'initialize' it which I believe will do a low level format :(
