Need help installing a raid controller with an existing software mirrored pair of hard drives.
Posted on 2004-09-13
I have an existing server running sbs 4.5 and it has a dual PIII 450 MB with no scsi or onboard raid controller. The software is maintaining the mirrored pair od 13 gig HD's C: and E: , two partitions each and the CDrom is D:
I want to install a raid 1 adaptec 1200 card to make the machine more efficient and install more ram before upgrading it to sbs 2000.
Can someone tell me how to do this, preferably without losing my present mirror, but what ever will work best. I only have three users right now so not a big deal to back up etc.... Please be specific as I know little to nothing about raid setups, never done one before.
