From SCSI to ATALocked
i have a client running:
exchange server 5.5
regular sbs setup, with data files located on D: drive and exchange stores
also located on the D: drive.
well, seems when i tell them to clean up the d: drive and their
inboxes/deleted items/sent items, no one seems to listen till the server dies with no space left on the d-drive.
the drive is an old scsi 50 pin 8GB drive, which its time has come to put out to pasture.
I’d like to throw in a 80GB ATA drive to replace it, and use norton ghost to mirror the old drive to the new drive.
after the clone, if i disconnect the scsi drive cable from the old d-drive, setup the ATA drive as a slave, when i restart, will NT be a happy camper or am i looking for trouble.
will nt see the drive and continue booting and will exchange server also be happy as if nothing ever happened. ?
the c-drive is the only other drive in the sytem (its also scsi based) (cd rom is at drive F:)
any thoughts or insight greatly appreciated.
