Interestingly enough, I have a usable sdc1, but there's no sdc...

# dd if=/dev/sdc
dd: opening `/dev/sdc': No such file or directory

# ls -l /dev/sd* | grep -v sda
brw-------  1 root root 8, 16 Nov  7 14:43 /dev/sdb
brw-rw----  1 root disk 8, 17 Nov  7 14:43 /dev/sdb1
brw-rw----  1 root disk 8, 33 Nov  7 14:45 /dev/sdc1

I can actually mount /dev/sdc1 and it's the partition on the SAN.  But
I cannot dd or fdisk /dev/sdc itself.

This is a first time I've seen this kind of disk behavior before!

Thanks,
Scott
