Mirror MCS 7825H-3.0 hard drive

Answered Question
Feb 1st, 2008

My call manager server recently crashed with a failed hard drive. After 2 days of diagnosis and 3 seperate part shipments we got everything back running on a new drive.

We are using a MCS 7825H-3.0-IPC2 server. How do I mirror the primary hard drive so if it crashes I can put in the spare? (I would create the image and remove the spare to store safely elsewhere)

I have this problem too.

Thanks for the info. This would definately do it, but I've already configured the RAID with one drive. Redoing it now would wipe everything (not that I don't now have the experience on reloading!).

I posed this question to the TAC tech I've been working with throughout this crisis and he suggested using an ghosting software.
