I'm not really sure how to interpret this, but, after I swapped sd1 with
sd2 I was able to create filesystems on all partitions. After swapping
them back, everything still worked. The server is brand new. Perhaps the
disk carriers were not properly seated, although, the disk utilities in
the SCSI controller were happy.
