media server drives failing on boot - reinstall questions
Hello. Have a media server on Windows 2008 server r2 enterprise with attached tape drive / equali logic san..this media server is giving me errors on boot, and new drives have been ordered. Still looking into why my RAID mirroring failed, but that's another story.
My question- all backups are either on tape or the attached (external) SAN. If I need to reinstall the OS on this, am I going to be able to:
(as an aside - my catalog backup file is going to a different media server)
a) quickly reimport my existing images?
b) is this going to be an easy fix (i.e. as simple as reinstalling Windows server)?
c) having backups going over wan is not an option, so I will be without backups until we get new drives in. Not the end of the world. Just wanted to avoid having to re-import these existing images manually.
My master is on the same OS.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
