  • Ws2k3 keeps reboot after restoring to same server with different SCSI controller

    Hi All,

    I'm about to downsize my Exchange Server 2007 SP1 which is also resides in my Domain Controller, it is now using less than 400 GB spread across 4 different partitions:

    1. Dell utility partition 50 MB
    2. C:\ OS 50 GB
    3. D:\ Database 200 GB
    4. F:\ Empty 0 MB
    5. L:\ TransactionLOG 800 MB

    it is now installed on 5x400 GB SAS 10k rpm RAID 5, PERC 6/i SCSI controller

    The target server is the same specs but the Hard Disk is 2x 400 GB SAS 10k RPM RAID 1 - SAS 6/i which give me around 378 GB of usable space.

    But then after the restore process, my OS is infinitely restarting ?

    I didn't check restore anyware I've also restore each partitions using "Restore Disk signature" options already and only mark the C drive partitions as boot/active ?

    Does this because i skipped the Dell Utility partitions or SCSI controller issue

    It's probably a driver issue from your SCSI controller.....
    However are you aware that exchange isn't supported on a DC (unless it's a SBS)?
