As Mike pointed out, quite likely that someone has claimed /dev/sdb1.
Maybe, lvm, evms, dmraid, ...etc. You will have to find out who claimed
it by running commands from lvm/evms/etc... OR if you don't have useful
data on it, simple zero few MB at the beginning and the end of the
partition and reboot. It may work. I am assuming that /sanHBA is not
used by anyone either (like CD'ing into it and then trying to mount).

Helpful commands: fuser -m /dev/sdb1; dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb1
count=1 bs=1M
