which raid 1 drive will rebuild after repartition of other drive?
Posted on 2009-04-03
I'm thinking about the best way to repartition a raid1... and then got stuck.....
Dell Poweredge 2900 w/Perc5/i controller
--Raid 1: 67.75GB , two drives (0:1:0, 0:2:0)
--Dual Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5355 @ 2.66GHz
--16384 MB RAM
--Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2, Standard x64 Edition Version 5.2 (Build 3790 : Service Pack 2) (x64)
here's the scenario i've brewed up:
1. I turn the server off
2. I pull drive 0:1:0
3. Power server on
4. Quickly use a boot disc like acronis disk director or g-parted
5. Repartition 0:2:0 (giving more space to the C drive)
6. Reboot computer
7. Five minutes later plug 0:1:0 back in
my question is will 0:1:0 rebuild to be exactly like 0:2:0 ? Is this the safest way to repartition a raid 1?
