I suspect some hardware problem. But running both masters and slaves
in the same volume is asking for performance problems. Try the
1. Try a volume with only two subdisks, on the primary disks.
2. If that works, try a subtle difference to your previous Vinum
plex org striped 256k
sd length 78159m drive d1
sd length 78159m drive d3
sd length 78159m drive d2
sd length 78159m drive d4
That way you're less likely to run into trouble with concurrent access
to the primary and slave disks on the same controller.
