Cool and useful Windows Home Server Disk Management add-in

if Heineken did Home Server Web sites then We Got Served would be their site.  I love reading the information that Terry puts on there and what is really good too is the fact that it is a UK site.  Not that I object to anyone being successful in any country, but it is nice to have one on home turf too.

Anyway, the latest little ditty is the Disk Management add-in from Sam Wood which shows you the status of your disks (capacity used) and where they are in the box (you have to configure this)

Add-In: Windows Home Server Disk Management

A new add-in was released by developer Sam Wood today, called WHS Disk Management. The add-in is an extension of the standard WHS Server Storage interface, helping users visually identify the physical disks they’re working with.

Windows Home Server Disk Management

Here’s how it’s used:

Select one of the disks, or expand the columns after the disk ID, to see infomation about the disk. It takes awhile to render, because it’s doing a WMI crawl to find the disk controller. You get SCSI bus/port/LUN, plus disk controller. That’s useful information if you know which port is which on your SCSI/SATA controller.

If you have a Home Server and are a bit techie and like to see what is happening on each disk, this is a must.

Your opening line may just end up on my headstone. Beer related compliments are always the best :-)
