I was attempting to create mirrored drivers in Windows Server 2008 R2,  There are two drives in the server: Disk 0 & Disk 1.  Both drives were healthy before attempting to mirror them.

When creating the mirror, his error occured:  Event ID Storage Service,  
disk medium error detected: Physical Disk 0:0 controller 0, connector 0" and "disk medium error detected: Physical Disk 0:1 controller 0, connector 0"

I broke the mirror.  Disk 0 is now a dynamic disk and is not Online, but says Errors.  I right click on Disk 0 and the only option is to "Reactivate disk".  When I click it, it reports the same error.

Disk 1 is also dynamic and Online.

How can I get Drive 0 back to normal and attempt to create the mirror again.

Thanks.

sorry, I have spelling errors...  meant to say "drives" not "drivers" and "his" should be "this".

You need to test whether Disk O is still healthy.  From those messages it may not be.

I'd take the disk out of the machine and attach it to another machine and test it there.  Download the appropriate util from the disk manufacturer and use that tool to check your hard disk out.

I agree with dbrunton, you really need to check the health of these two drives, and do a full format with bad block detect before attempting to mirror.

What are the drives? (Make, model, etc)

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I understand the need to scan the drives, but they were fine before I attempting the mirroring.  This occurred right away after attempting it.  After digging a little, Dell OpenManage is reporting these errors. Does that make any difference on what the issue could be?  Thanks.

Download Western Digital's Data Lifeguard diagnostic from here http://support.wd.com/product/download.asp?groupid=616&sid=3&lang=en

Install this and the hard disk on another machine.  Then run the Quick Test.  If it passes that then run the Extended Test.  Note that sometimes the util will map out bad sectors on the disk and return it to full use if it can.

Use the manufacturer's util rather than Dell's to verify the disk.
