I have just setup Windows 2012 Server Standard on an HP DL380 Gen 9. I have a raid 1 array with 2 drives and a raid 5 array with 4 drives. The drives are all 600GB SAS. This Server 2012 installation will be running Hyper-V and then 2 VMs will be installed, both running Server 2012.
In the server software these raid arrays are setup fine and recognised. I installed the OS successfully to the raid 1 array.
My question is, when I boot to the Server 2012 environment I can see the raid 5 array in disk management but I can't access it with a right click to define a volume. What is the best method to set this up? I'd like to install my VMs on there. Here's a screenshot:
I understand that I also need to define it as a SAN for the VMs later on too, maybe this needs doing now, if so how?
