Disk mirroring on W2K Server

By rbrack ·
My W2K server was installed on a "basic" disk volume and at the time my second disk was inoperable--after repairing the second disk I discovered that W2K want 2 "dynamic" disks in order to create a mirror set--I converted the 2nd disk to dynamic with no problem, but of course there was nothing to lose on it--since this system runs my PBX I can't afford to lose any availability of this guy:: Can I convert Disk 0 to a dynamic volume without losing any apps, data, or taking the system off line??

Disk mirroring on W2K Server

The short answer is NO. You CAN convert the system volume to dynamic disk, but it will require a reboot to complete.

There are NEVER any guarantees procedures such as this will work flawlessly! Make sure you have a GOOD backup of your system before attempting this procedure.

Don't forget that volume 2 must have unallocated (unpartitioned) space of equal or greater size than the volume you are mirroring.

I can live with a reboot--just wasn't sure from the online help if the process would require a complete reload or something like that--Thanks for the info
