But one of the drives is spanned. Whats the steps to mount a spanned volume? TigaFan09Member October 12, 2012 at 2:02 pm #379455 Re: File server mounting spanned volume I don’t understand what this has to do with a VMware product – sounds more like a procedure you’d carry out in the guest OS to me… anna25Member October 12, 2012 at 2:19 pm #385207 Re: File server mounting spanned volume Just trying to figure out if its possible to mount a spanned dynamic disk to a new VM TigaFan09Member October 12, 2012 at 2:54 pm #379456 Re: File server mounting spanned volume That would be down to Windows, what you’re trying to do is the VM equivalent of moving physical disks between servers, and I don’t know how Windows would handle your volume. wullieb1Moderator October 13, 2012 at 3:39 am #243997 Re: File server mounting spanned volume Can you please explain a bit more how your system is actually setup?? Do you currently have 2 VMDK files that have been spanned inside a windows server and you then want to mount them on a new VM??
