DL380 G5 & Windows 2000 Server

Hi there, I recently installed a DL380 G5 with Windows 2000 Adv Server using the SmartStart 7.90 CD.

Everything went fine, the only issue I have is with the hard disk size.

I am using 3x146GB serial SCSI drives in a raid config 2+1, meaning the total size of the disk is roughly 280GB.

Windows recognizes the drive as only 4GB though in the disk management 280GB is displayed.

How can I get the system to use all of the disk?

Thanks for the help!!

Resolved the problem by creating an image of the OS drive, then I formatted the drive using Acronis, then restored the image to the newly formatted partition created with Acronis.

Windows 2000 Adv Server now sees 280GB!
