CCISS drives cannot be accessed as SCSI drives. They need to be worked through the cciss driver. I wrote a patch that would do it on DL380 on kernel 2.4. Dont know if it work on your setup.

I've been trying to get smartd working with our HP ML370 scsi raid
controllers. I found several postings about this last year concluding
the need to be able to access the drives in the raid array separately
via a /dev entry.

Our typical setup is a /dev/cciss/c0d0 device that contains 5 physical
scsi disks. Of course, running "smartctl -a -d scsi /dev/cciss/c0d0"
doesn't work... but I looked in /dev/cciss and found:

c0d0 c0d0p1  c0d0p2  c0d0p3  c0d0p4  c0d0p5

So it seems that all the devices are present... but running:

smartctl -a -d scsi /dev/cciss/c0d0p1 through p5

...doesn't work either. Is there any other possible way to query these
drives using any other switches or parameters?
