Windows 2000 Mirroring problem
Posted on 2006-06-23
I have done mirroring in windows 2000 server and boot.ini files content is as below
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server As [Normal]" /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server As [Mirror]" /fastdetect
when both hard disks are connected i could boot from any one of the above options
Just to simulate realtime situation, i disconnected one of the hard disk. now i could boot only thro first option ..... [Normal]
when i tried [ mirror] option i got the following msg
windows 2000 could not start because of computer disk hardware configuration problem. could not read from selected boot disk. check boot path and disk hardware.
Now i connected both the hard disk and tried to boot from mirror i got blue screen fatal error.
i booted thro [norma] and when i went to computer management , the mirrored hard disk was deactivated .
can some body explain the flow here
