These are original IBM disks. #4327. they have "iSeries" written on
them. They were purchased with the system and were shipped
preinstalled. System was delivered from IBM directly to us.

they show up in DST, do they look like and report in correctly? Were these

There is not much of a DST without a LIC installed. I can see them in
the "Format Disk Unit" screen. I formatted them, but it didn't have
any effect.

The format screen looks like this:

Serial Resource
OPT Unit ASP Number Type Model Name Status
68-096XXXX 4327 050 DD001 Non-configured
68-09XXXXX 4327 050 DD002 Non-configured
68-0XXXXXX 4327 050 DD003 Non-configured
68-0XXXXXX 4327 050 DD004 Non-configured

disks in any other machine prior? Where they part of an old RAID set?

The disks were always in the same machine. The machine was originally
not partitioned, so all 4 disks were part of a 4 disk RAID set which
was shipped preconfigured to be in ASP 1. I removed them from ASP1
before partitioning the machine.
