Import Foreign Disk

Hi,

Just changed a faulty disk on a Windows Server 2003 that has a Mirrored and Spanned volumes, the new disk came up on the disk management as Foreign Disk, when I right click, the only option I get is "Import Foreign Disk", my question is if I get to do this, will it import the disk into the target Server Disk Group or will it import the group from the previous Server Disk Group?

Secondly, if the disk is imported to the target Server Disk Group, how do I know which group to import the disk to ie Mirrored or Spanned group?

Thanks in advance......

    I believe when you mark it for import you will be asked to select a target disk group.

    This may be of help. Books online: Windows Server 2003 in a Nutshell/Disks
    Hopefully there's material there appropriate for the configuration you're working with.

    Thats what I remember, but I've never actually done this.
    Decide what to be and go be it.
