just added two 1tb hard drives to my friends server at his work..

Thread Starter 
I just added two 1tb hard drives to my friends server at his work.. is there anything i need to do to make them accessible over the network? I was thinking about combining them together into one spanning drive. Any help would be appreciated. He has a 2003 windows rc2 server.

Maybe this is helpful http://support.microsoft.com/kb/323420. But it'll be a lot of work.

1) Share the drives on the server, if it has XP disable simple file sharing, and share manually
2) Map them as network drives on the client computers
- Open windows explorer(My computer)
- Click "Map network drive"
- Select the letter you want from the drop down menu, this will be the letter of the network drive on the CLIENT PC
- Next to the path box, click browse, and navigate along the network to the drive you want. Select it and it'll be a network drive on the client.
- Remember to set the drive to "Mount on start up" so that it automatically mounts when the machine starts.

If you don't want to use the brows button, then in the path box, type "\\NameOfServer\Drive Letter" which should achieve the same thing, but the browse box normally works easier.

If you need any more help I'll try my best to sort you out.

I do not see how that topic relates to my problem. I cannot see the drives in order to share them.

Can you see them on the server??

If they are correctly picked up on the server, then just right click on them, select share, ignore warnings, disable simple file sharing, share manually, click ok. When the hand appears under them, you're good to go.

Then you have to map them as network drives on the client PC's, using the process I detailed in my post above.

Edit: With manual sharing, remember to enable the relevant permissions, for example, allowing other users to read, write, modify etc.

Going back over there after work but i did not see them in disc management or in device manager. His C drive on the server is completely full so id like to combine the two additional drives as one and make his C drive one big network drive. If i haven't set them up i don't see how i can see them on the server. Maybe ill try taking one of them out and switching the other to a different SATA cable and see if that helps.

Yeah, first you have to be able to see them under My Computer on the server. Once that's done, and you can see them and use them on the Server, it's pretty simple to share them and map them on the clients.

Haven't went back over there but is it possible that the motherboard doesn't have the updated driver for the SATA hard drives? It is windows 2003 and there is no active IT guy or anyone who maintains it regularly.
