When I tried to do the same thing on a comparable machine, the RAID could not be created, because something tried to access the disk at a bad position. I reapeated the attempt with another set of disks of the same size, and it also failed.

You need an updated version of mdadm.  The fix for this was committed to
SLES10-SP3 in early August this year, so you need an update since then.
However as far as I can tell an update hasn't been released yet... I should
probably look into that.

But you can work-around by explicitly setting the bitmap chunk size.
Anything larger than 64K will do.  I generally suggest a much bigger bitmap
chunk size these days. so maybe add
   --bitmap-chunk=65536
(which is 64Meg) to the --create line.

The source-code fix is:


--- mdadm-2.6.orig/super0.c
+++ mdadm-2.6/super0.c
@@ -833,7 +833,7 @@ static int add_internal_bitmap0(struct s

+	unsigned long long max_bits = (60*1024 - sizeof(bitmap_super_t))*8;
 	unsigned long long min_chunk;
 	int chunk = *chunkp;
 	mdp_super_t *sb = sbv;

Your bitmap comes to 59.9998K and there is only room for 59.75K.

(If you have a support contract and want to log a call to get an official
update, please mention bnc#579170)
