I have a server with 2 identical hard drives. I installed windows server 2016 core on the 1 rt hard drive and now I would like to mirror (raid 1) the content of this hard drive on the hard Drive 2. How to do this from the command line ?
This can be done from administrative tools --> disk management, but if you want it from command prompt, you can use diskpart.
1st step is to convert the disks to dynamic:
select disk 1 convert dynamic select disk 2 convert dynamic
Then, you must select the required to be mirrored volume(s) and assign the second disk:
select disk 1 select volume 1* add disk=2
*Make sure the volume you select is the desired one.
Other helpful commands:
list disk list partition
