How to set up a Mirror Drive?

By ram_swarnam ·
Hi, i am working on Windows 2008 Server (64 bit) Before I put into production I'd like to mirror the drives

I cannot find any source where they explain the steps to convert disk 1

Grateful if someone could

What I think you are asking about is a RAID 1 Setup

You do this in the initial Setup of the OS by using whatever your hardware has available as a RAID 1 Array.

The exact directions will be in the User Manual for your Server.

It could be this kind of scenario.
If RAID controller was not cofigured during POST -"Ctr-M"
by using Dell Management Tools and Documentation it is possible to
reshresh RAIDs configuration.
In case, if server itself has extra hard drives
Better way before installation of OS to preconfigurate RAIDs on RAID CONTROLLER BIOS
including Hot Spares
