It would appear that the setup harddisks with 2.10.5 fixes the problem

Hi Folks:

I'm using fai 2.8.4 with debian sarge to set up a lot of new hosts.

I have several HP servers with 6 drives set up in three seperate arrays. So 
they correspond to cciss/c0d0, cciss/c0d1, cciss/c0d2.     My class gets 
assigned correctly.    The disk_config gets read.

c0d0 gets assigned disk1
c0d1 gets assigned disk2
and then
c0d2 gets an error.
ERROR: could not read device /dev/disk3.

earlier in the process I see disks found: cciss/c0d0 cciss/c0d1 cciss/c0d2.

I see mapping disk name disk1 to cciss/c0d0
mapping disk name disk2 to cciss/c0d1
and then
cp: cannot stat /tmp/fai/disk_var.sh no such file or directory

My class detects correctly and then I have the following disk layout
disk_config disk1
primary /boot    100           rw,errors=remount-ro    ; boot -m 0 -j ext3
primary swap     2048           sw                      ; swap
primary /        22000-34000    rw,errors=remount-ro    ; -m 1 -j ext3

disk_config disk2
primary /var/lib/mysql  120000-143360   rw,noatime      ; -m 0 -j ext3

disk_config disk3
primary /home   18000           rw,errors=remount-ro    ; -m 0 -j ext3
primary /var    18000-20000     rw,errors=remount-ro    ; -m 1 -j ext3

Anyone know what I might be doing wrong?
