Heres some guides on how to's below. As far as add ins go, just download the files, and take the .msi file and place it in the "shared folders/software/add ins". Then log in to the WHS connector and go to settings, then add ins, and you should see the add ins available to install from within the connector.

You know WHS v1 won't support your 4TB array without a whole heap of hacks though, right? You should have put the money you spent on the PERC into another 2TB drive instead...

Gonna have to agree on this one. Such a PERC is unnecessary in my opinion. WHS with all the latest updates does a fine job of drive backup and duplication. Toss in another 2TB drive and make it really future proof.

No - WHS (with any/all the PowerPacks) doesn't support GPT (required for 2TB+ volumes). You need to either hack support in from Server 2003 or use 3rd party software (such as GPT Loader from Paragon). I don't know if either of the above will allow your array to be seen in Drive Extender, but they will allow your array to be used on its own.

Still, the prudent thing to do with WHS v1 is to just use Drive Extender to manage your redundancy - sell your PERC and buy another drive or 2...

thanks.. i just saw this

http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/whssoftware/thread/e9f9d27a-f8b1-4fc0-872b-bc8e3b2609f0/

no need to reinstall WHS i presume...

i will follow the steps from

"Run the home server console and add the new disk to the storage pool.

It will now format the array to an 2TB MBR basic partition."
and so on
