I'm running a SBS 2003 server which uses Microsofts software RAID, mirroring mode. A few days ago, one of the disks started to show problems, and a new one was aquired. However, I can't get it to replace the old one (The disks are same make and size).
(Note: I'm running a swedish version, so any names might be off, I'm transguesslating here...) In the disk manager, when right-clicking the running disk (Disk 2), "Add mirror" is greyed out. The new disk (Disk 1) is initialized, and converted to dynamic, but has no volume on it. The old disk now has a single, standard (simple?) volume on it, after breaking the old mirroring.
Why can't I add a mirror?
EDIT: Seems same make and size does not correspond to same physical size. The old disk is all of 1 MB larger than the new one. I can see the same thing on another mirrored disk, one of them is 1 MB smaller than the other. Could this be related to which disk was the original "master" of the mirroring? In both cases the higher numbered disk seems to be larger.
