  • PowerEdge T710 Missing Virtual D:

    I'm doing a clean install of SBS 2011 on a T710/PERC 6i. It has 3 232G drives in a Raid 5 array.

    I divided that into 2 virtual drives.
    One called SBS_OS at 283G
    One called UserData at 181G.

    The OS loaded onto SBS_OS error free but SBS makes no mention of UserData and assigns D: to the CD/DVD.

    The Dell utility shows both virtual drives with a nice green check mark and thinks they are both fine. This is while being run by SBS (not boot disk).

    What do I need to do to get SBS2011 to use UserData as D

    Go easy on me, I'm an old mainframer and this isn't really my cup of tea

    Normally go into server manager then storage management
    Change the drive letter for the optical drive (I use X: but anything you like) and you should also see a nice block of free space you can allocate to a D drive

      Thanks, that was exactly what I needed.

      Hope everyone here doesn't take vacation at the same time.

      Thanks again
