W2003Server can not see additonal array

July 16, 2010 at 08:52:28
Specs: Windows 2003 Server
I have a server with 2 Adaptec Raid controlers (16 total drive slots). I have OS and some data on a raid 5 on controller #1. To add a more space for data I installed 4 2tb drives on controller #2 and built a 5.4gb array using the DOS utility. It appears fine, the adaptec utility in windows shows it is fine also. I was expecting to see my new unpartitioned space in windows disk management but its not there?

do you list two controllers in device manager?

or is this a dual channel single controller?

There are two controllers in server, it lists two.

Also I just blew away my array and desided to try to build it in the adaptec storage manager software. From that software it will not let you build anything over 2tb. On the DOS utility it will allow the 5.4tb.
