I am implementing a new backup system and here is my setup. I have two
servers: one running SBS 2000, SP2 and the other running RH Linix 7.1. I
have a 40 GIG IDE drive installed in both servers and my intent is to back
up the Linux server to the IDE drive in the SBS computer and backup the SBS
computer to the IDE drive in the Linux server. There is software that runs
under linux that will do all of this so that's not a problem. The only
requirement is for the IDE drive to be partitioned as FAT32. SBS and
Exchange are both installed on SCSI hard drives.
I have installed the IDE drive and it is recognized during boot up. I then
go to my computer and manage and then to Disk Management. I can see the
drive there no problem. However, what ever I try, I cannot get it to
format. I have it mounted as a basic drive with only one (primary)
partition. When I try to format it it looks like it working but then when
it's done, I get an error that states that the volume lable to too long. I
have tred one letter volume lables but I still get the samre error. Does
anyone have a suggestion?
