I struggle to find modern documentation here.
So far we have been booting our servers from the main RAID controllers. Worked nice, but not we get the first of a new generation that hs in the back 2 slots for SATA hard discs, meant to be used as local boot systems. This is not bad - factually - as it means we dont ahve to waste precious SAS slots for that.
Last time I tried redundancy with the windows OS levels was a long time ago - likely around 2003. At that time it was tricky, one had to manually install an MBV on the second drive.
So, assuming I have 2 SATA discs that I Want to use as (windows OS system functionality using) mirror drives. What are the steps to do that?
I see: * Convert discs to dynamic discs. * Create mirrr for the boot partition and the "System Reserved" partition.
Anything else needed? Or will windows automatically install a MBR on the mirror disc?
I Tried my google fu, but it is failing - alos artially because most references are either for UEFI issus (We dont ahve UEFI) or for older versions (2003, 2008).
If anyone wants to warn me from this - please give me reasons. THe mobo also has raid (SP5100, AMD, some Adaptec stuff on board) but I seriously consider avoiding that - also because the last drivers I could find where for longhorn... and now we move to 2012 R2...
