Hi .... I have an MD3000 SAS attached to my server and appearing as a separate hard disk on windows server 2008, but according to my application it has to be mapped as a folder on the C: drive .... can this be done and how ?
Hmm I think this can be done in Windows 2008 disk manager. You would have to unassign the drive letter first. I have never done this after the fact. When the disk is 1st initialize, 2008 Svr disk manager asked if you want it drive mapped or folder assigned.
To clarify JOHNADCO's information:
- go to disk management
- right click and select the option to add/remove drive letters
- remove the drive letter
- add a mount point (this needs to be an empty folder on an NTFS filesystem (e.g. an empty folder on your C-drive)
Now when you write data to that folder, it's really writing to the SAN virtual disk.
