Quick question about mirroring: Please help, server is down!
I have a machine that has a Promise IDE controller in it as a separate card. I have two 40 gig IDE drives that are mirrored in this machine. Well I think the controller card has crapped out because the machine won't boot unless I take the card out. I need to get this machine up and running as soon as possible, so this is my question.
1) Can I go out and buy a new IDE controller card and plug these drives in as if nothing ever happened? Or is the mirror setup embedded onto that card?
2) If worse came to worse, could I just plug the two drives into the onboard IDE controllers? If I do this, will Windows continue to act as if they are a mirrored set of drives?
