Problem with software mirror-best course of action
Posted on 2010-09-19
I have Server 2008 R2 installed, and setup with a software mirror. Today, after a power outage, the system wouldn't start. It had a message along the lines of 'could not start, file missing'.
I powered off and back on, and was presented with the options of booting to Server 2008 or 'Windows Secondary Plex'. I chose the secondary plex, to attempt booting to the secondary drive.
It booted no problem. But when I look at my disk manager now, the primary disk is not present. I tried to recan for disks, but no change. Is this normal, when you have booted to the secondary drive?
Also, what's the best course of action to get back to a point where I am setup with a working mirror again?
