I'm trying to add another HDD to a Dell server running Windows 2003 Small Business Server. The HDD was originally running a Linux OS. I installed the HDD into the Windows server, and it wasn't detected in Disk Management at all. So I removed the HDD, formatted it externally to FAT32, reinstalled to the Windows server, but still nada. When I plugged it into my desktop PC, it was recognized immediately and showing 300GB free. The server is configured with a RAID configuration, using 4 hard drives currently. I'm trying to install the old linux HDD as a 5th drive, but to be seperate from the RAID configuration and to strictly hold backups (basically just a seperate data drive). Why is this drive still not showing in Disk Management? The owner of the server does not wish for me to return to shut down the server again as it halts their business (literally takes 15 min to shut down, another 15 min to boot up).
Is there a utility I can run that will detect this drive and configure it correctly from within Windows? I've got the WD Diagnostic utility installed, as well HDDGuru's LLF Tool that I normally use to detect/format drives, but neither of them see the drive either. Any help or information on this would be highly appreciated
