I'm completely inexperienced using Raid 1 on HP ML110 G3.
I did follow HP's instructions on BIOS setting IDE to Raid. And then pressing F8 to configuring Raid 1.
That was 'successful'.
Upon boot these messages paint upon the screen:
HP Embedded SATA RAID controller B2067
Port #00 149 GB Healthy
Port #01 149 GB Healthy
Array #0 Raid - 1 Raid 1 (Mirror) 148.88 GB Optimal
1 Logical Device(s) found
Windows 2000 Server initiates.
Comment : Because of no usb boot support and no floppy drive I needed to create an ISO disk using
Nlight to install Windows Server 2000.
I don't know how to use Raid 1. With Admin Tools Under Disk Management I see only C: 148.88GB NTFS.
I don't see the second drive.
I download HP Storage Manager. This application reveals nothing that appears familiar.
I do know that Raid 1 Mirror is installed, configured; but, I don't know how Raid 1 is functioning, working, how to interface with Raid.
I don't know how to detect if I will have a drive failure ; and if there is a drive failure ; I'm needing advise what to do with Raid.
Is there an application I should download that would allow user interaction, interfacing?
Should I consider using Norton Ghost to duplicate, and protect the data?
Thanks for any thoughts on this topic.
