    Hi All,

    I have three volumes(volSQL, volData, volLogs) that I replicated from a production SAN to a DR SAN. volSQL is essentially the C:\ drive on my SQL server. volData is the data drive and volLogs drive.

    I cloned all 3 replications as volumes on the DR SAN and then made an iSCSI connection to each. Now I can see the volSQL and volDATA as mapped drives on My Computer but the volData doesn't appear. I can however see it in Disk Management(along with volData and volLogs).

    Does anybody have any idea what the cause of this might be? volSQL is bootable? Could that somehow be the reason? The only other difference I noticed with it when compared with the other two was that the disk drives associated with volData and volLogs had a name assigned to them but volSQL didn't.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Oh by the way I did a bit of checking with DISKPART. What I found was as follows:

    DISKPART> list disk

    Disk ### Status Size Free Dyn Gpt

    -------- ------------- ------- ------- --- ---

    Disk 0 Online 298 GB 1024 KB

    Disk 1 Online 2037 GB 1024 KB

    Disk 2 Online 1024 GB 2048 KB

    Disk 3 Online 500 GB 7168 KB

    Disk 4 Online 2037 GB 1024 KB

    Disk 5 Online 1536 GB 5120 KB

    The disks I am concerned with are Disk 2, Disk 3 and Disk 5

    Their details are:

    DISKPART> select disk 2

    Disk 2 is now the selected disk.

    DISKPART> detail disk

    There are no volumes.

    For the volumes I found the following:

    DISKPART> list volume

    Volume ### Ltr Label Fs Type Size Status Info

    ---------- --- ----------- ----- ---------- ------- --------- --------

    Volume 0 I DVD-ROM 0 B No Media

    Volume 1 G DVD-ROM 0 B No Media

    Volume 3 SYSTEM NTFS Partition 100 MB Healthy System

    Volume 4 C NTFS Partition 111 GB Healthy Boot

    Volume 5 D NTFS Partition 164 GB Healthy

    Volume 6 SAMSUNG_REC NTFS Partition 22 GB Healthy Hidden

    Volume 7 E SQLDATA_New NTFS Partition 1024 GB Healthy

    Volume 8 H SQLLOGS_New NTFS Partition 500 GB Healthy

    Disk 5 is the one I can't see in My Computer. It appears to have the same settings as Disk 2 and Disk 3 except that it doesn't have a volume. Could this be why I can't see it?


    Cheers
