Server 2003 not allowing me to hot-swap sata drives.
This is my first MS server install. Bought an off-the-shelf HP box, added a SATA card and set it up for backing up huge areas of resources etc...
I've got 6x 500Gb SATA drives that I'm hot-swapping but I'm starting to find that when I put back in one of the drives I've already used the server won't let me access it.
I put the drive in, go to Computer Management and Disk Management and the drive shows up as "foreign". Go to import it and that fails with a error in the system logs that "a disk group with the specified name already exists".
Am I doing something wrong as I've done the same thing in XP at home no problem?
