We have windows server 2008 Ent installed on R710 Dell server. The server is supplied with 6 hardisks each with a cpacitiy of 450 GB. We planned to use this server for our recently upagred to exchange 2010. As so, we decided to go with RAID5 which means that about 2.2 TB of space will be used and partioned on the server. We have exactly gone with this plane:
- 150 GB is the C drive which contains boot,page file etc...
- 2 TB to be allocated to different partitions used by the Exchange (we planned to go with two partitions)
Our main issue is actually with about 45.12 GB which is show as unallocated space but for some reasons we can't do any thing with it!!! any body could explain what is the use of this additional partion?? why it was automtically created and nothing can be done on it!!
