Hi there. I have Windows 2003 server and am tring to set up a second drive for backups.
The second drive is a scsi drive connected through a controller card.
When I go into the Disk Manager I am able to see the unallocated drive but, when I right click the 'New Partition' option for the drive, it is disabled.
If you right click on the parent drive letter for the SCSI drive in Drive Manager (far left), does it give you the option to Initialize the drive?
It will need to be initialized before Windows can do anything with it.
