Add a drive to svr 2003 to create a mirror
I have an old Cachepilot box (see pic) which is currently running Server 2003 on a single disk. We are using this as a sort of media drive (all videos, photos etc go on it). Currently it has a 1TB drive in it.
I have purchased 2 x 2TB drives that I would like to use instead in a mirror configuration.
Is it possible to put one of the new drives in the Cachepilot and create a mirror (using SVR 2003 RAID). This will hopefully copy all data to new drive as a mirror of the original.
Can I then take out the original drive and put in the other new drive? Will the 2TB drive I originally added then build this drive into the mirror?
I hope that makes sense!
Or am i better off copying all Media files off and then rebuilding the server using the new 2TB drives and then copying the media back?
