As title implies I have a server that is running a raid I can see all the 3 drives in the dell server manager.
The two drives that comprise the raid and the 3rd drive that I want to use as storage space.
I only have options to make it blink, unblink, assign as hot spare or clear.  I want to use this drive as storage how do I make it storage.
I cannot see it my computer or in manage computer storage so the drive can only be seen in dell server managment software.
I formated drive outside of server because I was brand new and I thought maybe that was my problem but still no luck.
Any ideas.
