Can't add a disk to the DPM Storage pool RRS feed

  • Question

  • Sirs:

    I'm trying to get DPM 2010 up and running, I'm having an issue where there are no disks listed in the 'Add Disks to Storage Pool' window.

    The machine has three disks in Raid 5 as the primary drive, there is an extra drive stuck in the machine that is not on a Raid controller that I'm trying to use. It was formatted and set up as drive E; but I read that would not work so I unallocated it, that removed the drive letter.

    This drive now has 300 GB 'unfomated' and 100 MB that says System Reserved, 100MB Healthy (System, Active Primary). I don't have any idea what this is, but I don't seem to be able to get rid of it.

    Can anyone help me get this disk added to DPM?

  • I got this workin by Googling 'remove system partition', I was able to move the system partition to C: and deallocate the entire drive. Then DPM saw the drive
