Most likely; given that the two LUNs indeed refer to different disks.

Check the output of 'sg_vpd -p di /dev/sd(e|d|ar|ba)'.

'sde' and 'sdd' should be identical (well, the bits for 'Addressed
logical unit' should be), as should 'sdar' and 'sdab'.
'sde' and 'sdar', on the other hand, should _not_.

Given the above, however, I strongly suspect they are.
Looks like your LUN WWID generation code is buggered.

But I guess you can always blame Nic Bellinger :-)
