I think you can check if you are subscribed at the URL:

May still be a problem with reading DOS partition data from beginning of
the drive.  Did you "dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/mdX" for each device?  It
looks like you are getting the 50M boot partition data for your PV (this
may be corrupting that partition).  Are you sure your MD configuration
is correct, and that you are pvcreating the correct partition?
