hi again,

As DS2100 is a simple disk system which is connected using Ultra3 scsi interface card and cables with your server, the win2003 is going to detect the disks, if your SCSI card (on the server) driver is installed.

You may be able to see the disks from the disk management window of the OS and then will be able to partition the disks as per your needs.

But This is what i feel the way it should be

I can configured the DS2100 with the rx5670 and Windows with the internal SCSI port. I can't configured the DS2100 with the SA5304 on the rx5670 with Windows and I believe this is unsupported. Check the compatibility matrix.
