    My name is Jason. I am the I.T Manager of a YMCA and we have an issue with our NITIX server. NITIX was apparently bought out by IBM and they have since then replaced it with LOTUS; however, us being a nonprofit has left us with NO choice to upgrade the entire server so I have been upgrading the hardware as needed. We have recently purchased 2- 1TB harddrives (One being the backup) and I am attempting to restore data to one of them and use it as our primary drive. The issue that comes about is I am not exactly sure how to force the drive to feel that it should be the primary drive. I have spent a lot of time looking for PDF's or any sort of documentation but, aside from sales brochures, I have had no luck finding any information as to how I would go about restoring one of them as a primary drive. I have a full backup on one of the drives ready and able for a restore with the other 1TB drive unpartitioned. We are still using our old 100gig drive as our primary. All the drives are SATA front loaded. I was hoping someone on here might know anything about NITIX and could help me a little. Thank you for your time.
