Windows 2000 server failure
Posted on 2004-04-15
I actually have a theoretical question. This has not actually happened, but I would like to know what my options are if it does...
I have a W2k server with software mirrored drives on the system partition. If that machine were to fail due to a W2k software problem, say like a kernel error, where it would not even boot up...what options do I have to get the data off or try a system repair? Could I just attach one of the mirrored drives as a slave to an existing W2k server and copy data off? How does Windows mirroring effect a system repair from the boot CD?
Please let me know this and any other options or suggestions you may have. Thanks.
