HP Proliant ML350 with Raid 5 Array
Posted on 2005-04-19
I have a brand new HP Proliant ML350 w/3 72.8GB drives in the array, RAID 5. When setting up the server I had wanted two logical disks, a 40GB and the rest on the other (about 100GB) or so. I successfully set up the 40GB logical disk and was able to install Win 2k3 server. I then created the second logical disk using the HP Array config software. The drive never appeared in my computer (after several restarts), the array config software report no problems, and the 2nd logical drive appeared in that software.
I then deleted that 2nd logical drive in the array software, and tried to just extended the 1st drive to the full capacity. The extend worked successfully according to the array software, but alas, after several restarts my computer still reports the original c: drive at 39GB total size (the original size).
my questions, what am i doing wrong, how can i get my computer to recognize either the fully extended 1st drive, OR can i go back and unextend to create 2 drives?
