Device Manager
Your Windows Server 2003 computer contains a non-redundant volume that spans multiple disks. You move only a single disk from this volume to another Windows Server 2003 computer. What will be the result?
The volume will be disabled on both the original and target system. When all disks are moved, the volume will be recovered to its original state.
You have attached a new disk to your Windows Server 2003 computer. Which action must be completed before the new disk can be partitioned?
The disk must first be initialized.
