Replacing a pair of mirrored drives on a server
Posted on 2014-02-03
I support a small SBS 2008 nework with a Fujitsu TX100 S3 server with mirrored SATA drives.
A few times recently it has taken a few attempts when restarting the server for it to see the drives. The server is nearly 5 years old and we are covered for a further 3 years onsite with them, and I appreciate the second drive should kick in if the first fails, but this is a very busy little network and I can't afford any problems.
For the sake of £80 I would rather just get a new pair of drives.
With a SATA RAID can I just replace one drive, allow the system to rebuild it, and then pop in the other new one and let that rebuild?
