Yes, your best solution is to use Raid Manager to set-up the LUNs in whichever
RAID level you require (the boxes are built for optimal RAID 5 performance),
and then drag the LUNs into VxVM just like any other disk, and use them as
you wish. (Just don't make VxVM RAID 5 them again, as I had one customer
doing !!!!! ;)
