Are Hard Disks are controlled individually under WS2008R2? meaning one HD is running 24/7 with database requests while another is spun down after 20mins until the automated monthly backup occurs.
Neither of these links mentions this: http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD84026Q0000R01.htm http://blogs.technet.com/b/askds/archive/2008/03/17/managing-power-with-group-policy-part-1-of-3.aspx
Anyone tried hdparm (a command line utility for getting/setting various HD parameters) on WS2008R2? The real question is; does a wake up command get issued to ALL drives, or just the drive that is required at that moment?
