School boy error with RAID setup
Posted on 2003-11-20
A bit of a school boy error on my brand new server regarding RAID.
array #0: drive 2 + 3 RAID 1 (Win2k3 install)
array #1: drive 1 + 4 RAID 0 (empty array)
I converted array #1 to RAID 1 assuming that the setup would just mirror drives 1 + 4 and then saved the changes.
Upon restart the system would not boot so I went back into the RAID setup utility.
This is what the setup now reads:
array #0: drive 1 + 3 RAID 1
array #1: drive 2 + 4 RAID 1
For some reason the RAID setup has moved the drives around effecting both arrays.
Is there anyway I can salvage my Win2k3 install or should I just bite bullet and re-install?
