Creating the proxy partition on a GV STRATUS Express server

  • The Core Services server must be freshly re-imaged and must not have a proxy partition
  • The Core Services server must be intended for use as an Express server in the GV STRATUS system

The recommended method is to restore the Express Server using the system specific image that shipped on the server. When you do so, the proxy partition is also restored. However, if for some reason you must create the proxy partition manually, use this procedure.

  1. Log into the server as Administrator.
  2. On the Windows desktop, next to the Start menu, click on the Server Manager Icon. Server Manager opens.
  3. In the Server Manager tree select Storage | Disk Management.
  4. Right-click on CD-ROM 0 and select Change Drive Letter and Paths.
  5. Select the F: drive letter and click the Change button.
  6. In the Assign the following drive letter drop-down list select G.
  7. Click OK.
  8. Click Yes.
  9. Right-click on Disk 0's Unallocated disk space and select New Simple Volume. The New Simple Volume wizard opens.
  10. On the wizard's first page, click Next.
  11. On the Specify Volume Size page, select the maximum size (should be the default) and click Next.
  12. On the Assign Drive Letter page, select F and click Next.
  13. On the Format Partition page, select Format this Volume with the following Settings and make settings as follows:
    Option Setting
    File System NTFS
    Allocation Unit Size Default
    Volume Label Storage
    Check Perform a quick format
    Note: Do not check "Enable file and folder compression"
  14. Click Next.
  15. Click Finish. The wizard closes.
  16. Verify that the partition has been created.
