I added a new 300 GB drive to a PowerEdge 2800 server and trying to get Windows Server 2003 to "see" drive. I have OpenManage Array Manager installed and it sees the drive. I don't want to add it to the existing virtual array, I just need to configure it so Windows Disk Management can see it.
The options I have for the drive are: Assign Global Hot Spare, Prepare to Remove,
Blink or Unblink. I don't want to assign as a Hot Spare because I want to store data on it and not have it be a backup for the exisiting virtual array or am I misunderstanding how to configure this drive for use?
