New HD for File Server
Posted on 2009-05-07
I am attempting to install a new HD to our server as we are running out of space. I powered down the Dell PowerEdge 2950, inserted the new 300 GB HD and then powered up the server. The server is 2003 with all the updates minus explorer updates. The server does not see the disk but I can see it is receiving power. I also removed the disk and reinserted it a few times as well, but I am missing something I assume.
We have a simple set up for our server and I was just going to add the disk as a new drive all together.
I tried to go into Disk Management to do a simple initialize so I could format it but I could not see it there or in the My Computer area.
I assumed that this was going to be an easy task.
