We might have found the solution, after several calls to 3ware, with
them always saying that there is no problem with the cards, they
finally suggested to use a slower bus speed than the 133, max of 100
prefer 66.  After changing it to 100.  We have had no reported
problems after this change and we have had two departments on the
server for over a week.
