How to successfully swap out OS Hard Drive on windows server 2008 r2 with Raid 1 on drives.
Posted on 2014-08-26
I have a server with 8 hard drives set up as mirror. 3 drives are 300 GB and one is 146GB. The os was installed on the 146GB drive. I would like to swap one of the 300GB drives with the 146. One option I could put in a 300GB disk and let that mirror over then swap the other one out. Another I can use systmantec to image a 300GB drive and then swap that out with curren OS drive. I have never done thsi so I am not sure if either of these will work. I did try to swap the drive but it did not recognize the 300 GB kept calling it 146. I did not leave it in long enough to create a new mirror on that drive. Any help on how to do this without impacting my operating system would be greatly appreciated.
