Question about Dell PowerEdge 2600 Server
I replaced one of the hard drives in my poweredge. how do i get it to copy from the good hard drive?
I assume Win2000 - and PERC RAID ...
As far as I know, the PERC BIOS (ctrl M during power on, as I recall) is able to 'recover' from a 'broken' mirror ... HOWEVER when you replace the first 80Gb with a 200Gb the PERC BIOS will only use the first 80Gb.
I assume you then 'break' the other 80Gb and swap it out for a 200Gb .. again the PERC BIOS will only use the first 80Gb.
Assuming you reach this point (i.e. your system boots with 80Gb) you should then be able to get both drives expanded to the full 200Gb using DEll's 'Server Management' tool .. check out Dell's site for instructions on how to do this ..

Can you explain more about what you are trying to do?
Is this a RAID configuration?
Is it SCSI or SAS or something else?
