    I have a raid 1 setup in my server running 2003 and I can not get the new hard drive to run"add raid".

    The full story.

    I have a server running windows 2003 server. The scsi card is AIC-7902. I can get into the Ctrl+A on boot up but i can not access any hardware Raid setup screen (ctrl+i) is there something I am missing. Is it only a scsi control card and not a raid card? The only place i can get to access the new drives is in the disk management area.

    I can actually get the bad hard drive to mount and resinc but it has passed its failure prediction threshold which means it is going to fail soon. That is why i bought two new scsi hard drives to replace the one bad drive. I was planning on doing them one at a time to refresh the two 7 year old drives.

    Here is the kicker I currently have 68.49 gb(allocated space) and the new drive i just bought is at 68.36 gb. I know that it is suppose to be at the same size right? I ordered two 73.4 IBM hard drives to replace both 73.4 maxtor hard drives.

    Does anyone know if i need to replace the new drives with another 73.4 drive hoping that it will be the same capacity unallocated at 68.50 as the IBM drive?

    Is there another work around?
