I know in server 2008 R2 SP1 that i can have 4TB Volumes and break them down into 2TB Partitions. My question is in Server 2012 Standard does it have to be done this way as well, or can i create one huge 14TB Partition and it'll work?
this will be a raid 5 or 10 with one drive as a hot swappable/removeable, the OS will be 100GB and the rest i want as a single data drive. This is going to be my new backup server, and i really don't want to have to mess around with a ton of configuration if i don't have to.
Also does it play well in a server enviroment of mixed OS's? 2003 standard and 2008 R2
