New discs and new controller in SBS2003
Posted on 2011-10-09
My customer is using an SBS2003 with 2 80GB drives as Software Raid 1.
He needs more space, so i bought a 3ware Sata Raid controller and 3 500 GB drives running as a raid5 array. What is the best way to transfer the whole SBS2003 installation from the old raid1 to the new raid5 configuration?
I tried ntbackup, then changed the drives, did a minimum sbs2003 installation on the new drives so that i can restore the backup using ntbackup. But after restoring, it does not boot anymore, because the controller driver or some configuration is probably overwritten. Does anybody know, which files i have to exclude from restore in order to not overwite the 3Ware drivers?
It is now the second weekend where i try, still no success. Help please.
