How to Create a Mirrored Volume
To create a mirrored volume on a remote Windows 2000 Server-based computer from a Windows XP Professional-based computer:
Connect to the Remote Computer
1. Log on as administrator or as a member of the Administrators group.
2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel. Click Performance and Maintenance, click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Computer Management.
3. Right-click Computer Management (Local), and then click Connect to another computer.
4. Click Another computer, type the name of the computer to which you want to connect, and then click OK. Or, click Browse to locate the computer, and then click OK twice.

The Computer Management window of the remote computer is displayed. Expand Storage (if it is not already expanded), and then click Disk Management.

Create a Mirrored Volume on the Remote Computer
1. In the Disk Management window, right-click unallocated space on one of the dynamic disks in which you want to create the mirrored volume, and then click New Volume.
2. In the New Volume Wizard, click Next.
3. Click Mirrored volume, and then click Next.
4. Under All available dynamic disks, click the disk in which you want to host the mirror, and then click Add. Verify that the disks in which you want to create a mirrored volume are listed in the Selected dynamic disks box.
5. In the Size box, specify the amount of unallocated disk space to use for the volume, and then click Next.
6. Assign a drive letter or path, and then click Next.
7. Specify the formatting options that you want to use, and then click Next.
8. Confirm that the options that you selected are correct, and then click Finish. The mirrored volume is created and appears in the appropriate dynamic disks in the Disk Management window.
9. Quit Disk Management on the remote computer.
