Followup comment: I created the two RAID sets, then started to create the
volume sets... and realized I didn't know if it was *possible*, much less
desirable, to have a volume set that spanned two RAID sets. Talked it over
with my manager, and I redid it as three RAID sets, one volume set each.

Maybe the initialization will be done tomorrow.... <g>
