Physically Removed Hard Drive From WHS2011 Without Telling The Server, Now What? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I tried searching for my specific problem, but I could not find the answer.

    I set up a WHS 2011 server with a kludge of 4 1TB drives: 1 1TB system drive solo and 3 1TB drives software RAID'ed together. I decided against that setup and removed the 3 1TB drives and replaced them with a single 3TB drive. At the same time I put an old DVD RW in. However, since I'm a man and I don't read instructions, I have tombstone links pointing to folders that don't exist. There was no data I wish to save from those drives.

    How can I re-set up the server so those tombstones exist on my new 3TB drive? I tried relettering the drive but that doesn't help. SHould I just nuke the server and reinstall WHS 2011, or is there another way?

    Thanks in advance,

  • If, as you say, there's no data you want to save from your server, a new installation will be the easiest path to follow.

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
