Moving w2k/exchange2K to same server with RAID controller
Posted on 2004-10-19
Please an expert's opinion on the following:
I have an exchange 2000 server running on a DC (I Know , not a good idea!!), along with a 2nd server , a DC (Glob catalog server).
The exchange server is now running on a Proliant ML350G3 server without RAID controller, it is running on the build-in SCSI Controller on 2 separate disks (C: and D:), so no redundancy.
Now i want to use a RAID controller instead, and transfer the partitions to that RAID configuration.
Can anybody tell me if this is possible, because a simple backup/restore of an image won't work because the controller hardware is different of course.
Can I do anything with sysprep for windows 2000? I have a feeling it won't work on a DC only on a member server, and then will it work for the exchange installation?
