New Mirror Drive Installation
Posted on 2013-01-31
We are running Microsoft Server 2008
say: We wish to create a mirror raid. I have 2 identical hard drives installed,I go to disk management,right click on 1 of the hard drives and choose mirror drives - then i get a message saying "something to reflect on conversion to dynamic drives after this - the system wont br able to boot on a single drive. Do you have any idea what this is about?
I was given 2 options - either default, Radio bottom OR an alternate option which was to partition - but i left it and choose default. Can you please ensure me via detailed information that 1 hard drive will boot up should one of the drives fail.
"Can i convert a dynamic disk back to a regular disk?" I do not have any specific requirements on the hard drive but the main thing is that should 1 drive fail - will the other stay intact and keep functioning as it should?
