interface are found at all...

Maybe off-topic here, but these IBM hard drives seem to be defective, and
have effective MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) that low, that perhaps
this drive won't be the last to crash in short time.

If I am not wrong, there are several places that document these
problems, as well as similar ones with some Fujitsu's hard drives. Just
in case, search the Internet and replace your disk before they crash.

Hope my off-topic helps.

That or use RAID underneath LVM for your storage. Using hardware RAID5 with a reasonable chunk size gives nice performance and allows you to generate LV's without having to worry about which PV they are on.
