Can't Mirror after using RESIZE utility
Posted on 2004-04-25
I had a 9 GB SCSI drive on a 4.11 server.
I used GHOST to copy it to a 18 GB - so I have 9 GB netware partition on a 18 GB drive.
I used the RESIZE utility (from Snapback I think) to change the netware partition to 18 GB.
Now I have 2 9GB netware partitions on a 18 GB drive.
I added the 2'nd netware partition as a segment of the existing netware volume.
The users see 18 GB total disk space - everything is OK.
Now - the mirror part.
I'm adding a 2'nd 18 GB drive and trying to establish a mirror set between the drives but it fails to mirror. It says the Original Netware partition is larger than the new partition.
This is despite me making the drives identical (same size drive, same dos partition, etc.).
I even made the dos part. smaller and made the NW part. bigger on the second drive, but the mirror fails with the same message.
