Server HP ML350G4, Windows Server 2003 R2. USB External storage disk Freecom/Datatank 1TB.
External disk used for automatic copy. Evrything works perfectly.
If server stops (i.e. some Microsoft update), once it restarts doesn't detect the USB external storage disk anymore.

Unpluging the USB and plugging again Server detects external disk and works properly.

What can I do for server  detecting USB external drive when restarting???.

Thanks in advance.

I understand you ask where do I plug the External USB storage disk drive.

Reply:

Id did try plugging in the USB connection ML350G4 has in the front of the server next to de CD reader and also I did plug on the USB connections (2) in the back of the server.
Same problem happens, whichever USB plug I use. When the server stops and restarts the external strorage disk drive doesn't exist anymore.

In the BIOS, have you setup USB in Legacy mode?  F10 at the POST.
