I had some issues with my 2003 server lately (see the lsass thread here), and I was finally able to get the PC up and running again. Thanks to some help from here. Now I have a different issue:
The server was up and running. It has a small RAID system (160 GB installed), and everything seemed to work fine. I decided to install a bit HD (2 TB) into the PC to back up some of my other computers and laptops. So I shut down the server and installed the new HD. The other two HD were installed on the SATA 1 and 2 slots, so I hooked up the new HD in teh SATA 3 slot. When I started teh PC, The Windows logo showed up (so I suppost the PC found theold hard disk), but then went into the chkdsk routine. I could hear the old hard disks clatter for a while (and chkdisk reported that it was removing one corrupt index from one file), the system quiteted down. That was 3 days ago. Since then the system sits there very quietly (the hard disk lights do not turn on, and I don't hear any hard disk activity (although sometimes it does sound a bit like it, but very quiet. That could be the new hard disk, but since it is unformatted, would CHKDSK even attempt to read it?
So, as I said, it's been 3 days now. From what I read here one should never interrupt chkdsk, but really? 3 days? What's your suggestion?
