To be precise, the 3rd disk shows the correct table while disks 1, 2, 4, 
5 and 6 give an error.  Since the disk names keep changing on reboot 
(which is a different story altogether), this could mean sda, sdb, 
{sdc}, sdd, sde and sdf, OR sdc, sdd, {sde}, sdf, sdg and sdh (where 
the {marked} one is the new disk, which is showing the partition table 

I used parted earlier to partition those disks too at installation 
(about an year ago), and for quite a while after that they showed the 
correct partition table too.  I don't know at what stage the partition 
tables became inaccessible since I don't examine the partitions of all 
the disks on all my servers on a regular basis ;)
