WHS Lists Internal Drive As An External RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm having issues with WHS listing an internal drive as an external in the console on the Server Storage tab.  Oddly when I downloaded the Disk Management add-in, it properly shows the drive as an IDE Interface.  I guess I can live with this if I have to, but it's really annoying and I would like it to display the bay it's installed in like the other two drives.

    I am running Windows Home Server with Power Pack 3 on an HP EX490.  The drive in question is a Seagate Baracuda 1.5 tb and this is the 2nd drive of that exact type and size I have in the server.  The third drive is the 1 tb drive which came with the server (with WHS installed).

    I would greatly appreciate any suggestions you may have in resolving this.

    Thanks in advance!

  • For anyone who cares, I resolved this issue simply be rebooting the server.  I should have thought of that in the first place.  Once the server came back up, the drive was properly listed as an internal.
