Working HDD reported missing - How to reconnect with the pool. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have moved my Home Server from one location to another and sure, I did shut it down before.

    When I booted the server back, I drive was reported missing.  I initially tought that the SATA cable disconnected from the Hot Swap SATA Tray holding three drive so I did not bother to open the case and thought of 1) Shutdown 2) Swap the drive to another Hot Swap Bay and 3)Reboot.


    The problem is that I have four identical 2TB HD in this machine and one of them, used for backup, was not in it's slot (You know off-site backup?)


    The 2TB drive with the SATA Cable disconnected is now into the slot where WHS knows there was this 2TB Backup.


    No Problem!, I will connect the SATA Cable and put back the drive where it was... To no avail.  WHS now perceived this is a new drive and won't reconnect it to the pool.


    Any Ideas or solution for me?  There is a lot of stuff on there...
