I have 6 x 500Gb drives formatted in raid 5. I have installed Windows Server 2003 R2 on 20Gb of this and want to format the rest as a backup drive (2.2Tb) is this possible?
I have found the following http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/device/storage/LUN_SP1.mspx which I thought suggested it was possible with SP1 but now I am unsure. I know I have SP2 installed now and the disk management tools is showing my unallocated disk space in two chucks, 2027.97Gb and 278.25Gb, but I want to use both these chunks as one drives.
Is anyone able to explain how I can do this?
