SBS 2003 R2 Dell Poweredge 1900 Raid 1 question

Posted on 2007-07-26

I just reinstalled SBS 2003 R2 on my poweredge server using the Dell Installation and Server Management Cd.  After I got everything up I had a C: partition that was set to the default of 25 GB and no D: partition with the remaining space.  I have two 300GB HD's in RAID 1 on a PERC 5/i integrated controller.  Under the dell server administrator software in windows under Virtual Disk it says the size is 278.88GB and layout is RAID 1.  Is there a way to create a partition with the remaining space that is sitting useless without starting all over again?

    Accepted Solution

    Go to start administrative tools computer management and then disk management. You can create an additional partion there.

    should I use Primary or extended partition?  I am using it for storage.
