Replacing a bad HD on software Raid 1
Posted on 2008-10-09
The primary hard drive on a software raid 1 (mirror) on windows server 2003 is bad. I would like to know how to replace this hard drive. Right now the system boot, but I do not know for how long. I have tried to move the second hard drive to the primary slot, but it cannot boot on its own. I also tried to boot to the recovery console to FIXBOOT, and fixmbr, but the console was unable to detect the partitions. I was able to install the correct SCSI drivers, and the hard drive itself is seen, but the partitions were not.
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
