How to replace the master of a mirrored pair of hard drives on a Dell PowerEdge T110 running Windows Server 2008 R2
Posted on 2014-01-14
I have a DELL PowerEdge T110 running Server 2008 R2 that has generated the following errors:
Event 2094, Server Administrator
Event 7000, Server Control Manager
Event 7009, Service Control Manger
Event 7001, Service Control Manager
Event 2057, Server Administrator
This server has 2 hard drives. The drives are mirrored. The main disk has 2 partitions, a 40 Gb C: drive and a 190 Gb D: drive.
The C; drive has 3 Gb free space
The D: drive has 155 Gb free space
The paging file is on the D: partition and has a custom size of 8000 Mb.
The server has 2 - 2048 MB DIMM type RAM chips.
This server suffered a drive failure about 6 months ago on the mirrored drive (01)
There is no maintenance contract on this server. Shipped on 4/2010 [?]
They are running QuickBooks Pro and TrendMicro on this server with 4 PCs configured in a WORKGROUP. No Active Directory loaded on this machine.
I can remote into it, but do not know how to access the drive manager that would show me the health of the drives. Any help or comments is greatly appreciated. Including on the configuration of the server itself. [or should that be another question?]
What is the procedure for replacing the master drive of a mirrored pair?
