IDE Disk Mirroring Windows 2000 Server?

By jj__27 ·
I am wondering if a person can take two IDE Hard Drives and mirror them with Windows 2000 Server? I know SCSI works, I just haven't found any info on IDE.

You should be able to. 2000 Server supports mirroring and Raid 5. You can use any form of HDD does not matter. If you right click on "My computer" and go to "Manage". In there there is the Disk Manager. From Disk Manager you can setup those features.

I haven't tried it yet with 2000 server but I've had mirrored (duplexed) drives with NT Server for a couple of years without any problems. Should work with 2000 as well.

Yes!
You can mirror ANY kind of disk.
Remember that disk should be both ide or both scsi, preferable the same or near the same size. Partitions sizes should be identical. And of course, two phisical disks!
Process:
Install second HD
Create a Partition exactly as the one you want to mirror.
Select both disk partitions and chosse mirror from the menu.


Good Luck
