Desperately Need help setting up Raid 1 on a Dell Poweredge 1750
Posted on 2004-09-08
I have a PE1750 with 2 36GB drives. The very first thing I did was to boot the server to the Server Assistant CD and off through the wizard I went. I chose Raid 1 and then when it prompted me for disk size (or something like that) I entered 6GB. Then the wizard completed, asked for the Windows 2003 server cd and installed server. Everything appeared to be fine except when I went into My Computer or Windows Disk Management I have only a 6GB drive and 30GB unallocated :( I am in desperate need for someone to provide step by step instructions so that I may get this server up and running correctly. The reason I entered 6GB was that I was thinking of having a 6GB partition for the OS and the rest for data. The wizard never asked me again for disk partitions sizes or anything. What am I doing incorrectly, I am a newbie setting this up. Help! :)) What I need is step by step directions.
