I have a NAS server with a controller and dynamic logical drives. Some of the logical drives are spanned volumes and some are just dynamic logical drives. If I want to rebuild my server will all of the drives show up they way they were or will I lose the spanned volumes?
Thursday, October 09, 2008 6:19 AMHi Tommy,
After we rebuild the server without formatting the dynamic disks and the spanned volume, the operation system will recognize the information from the dynamic disks and show up the way they were. The system won't lose spanned volume in this case. This is because of the reason that dynamic disks are partitioned using Logical Disk Manager (LDM) partitioning. The LDM subsystem in Windows maintains one unified database that stores partitioning information for all the dynamic disks on a system—including multi-partition-volume configuration. The LDM database resides in a 1-MB reserved space at the end of each dynamic disk.
Hope it helps.
