I'll test this once everything is back together.

No, I looked at this also. All machines had access. What I did notice was that 
the switch was in a state with flashing ports so I restarted it and all seemed 
to go fine after that.

Well, that's where things got weird. It didn't matter what I tried, I would 
get seg faults. I was not able to run ANY tools on the storage other than 
fdisk'ing them to LVM, that's it. Nothing else worked.

That's the other funky thing that happened and is why I posted asking if what 
I see from webmin is the same as what I see from the command line. I asked 
that because I was sometimes able to see volumes from one or the other.

Either way though, I was not able to do anything with the volume I would see 
because I would get seg faults. The seg faults ended once I reformatted one of 
the devices, which is one of the one's back on line now.
