Server 2003 using the onboard raid controller for a 2 drive raid 1 for the OS and a intel SRCS16 hardware controller using raid 5 for data storage
Posted on 2006-06-02
I installed windows server 2003 standard edition to a pair of 80gig SATA drives (raid 1) using the onboard raid on a Intel 7230NH-1 motherboard. That was no problem. The snag is I have an Intel SRCS16 hardware controller card I am trying to use for a 4 drive (250gigs each) raid 5 array for data storage that the O/S cant see. Both arrays show up during POST. Control-G gets me to the hardware raid and it assures me that all the drives are working, added to the array, initialized, and seen as a single logical drive. All the hardware shows up in device manager . I have to have this server up with 9 workstations on a yet to be installed network including a SonicWall TZ-170 by 10:00am CST Monday morning. Before this morning I had until June 12th to get er done.
