booting from a mirrored hard disk on a Windows 2000 Server domain controller
Posted on 2003-11-21
I have a Windows 2000 Server domain controller with two physical 36 gb SCSI hard disks, which were mirrored until about a month ago. The disks were mirrored until about a month ago, when I went through windows disk management and broke the mirror. There was a botched software install on the primary drive, and I would now like to remove it completely and replace it with the mirror drive from a month ago. How can I do this?
I've tried simply swapping the current drive out and replacing it with the mirror from last month. But, while "preparing network connections..." Windows kicks back an lsass.exe error...it is my guess that this mirror drive is not booting properly because the drive (consisting of a primary and extended partition) was lettered E: & F: and the Windows installation on the drive is looking for C: & D:? Maybe thats totally off base, but any help would be appreciated! This problem is rather urgent so maximum points will be given.
