    Hi
    I just recently cloned the SCSI boot drive in my server to another spare SCSI drive, but I when I remove the original boot drive I can't get the server to boot from the cloned drive.

    Does anyone know how I can set my clone drive to be the boot drive??

    Thanks a lot

    Would it have anything to do with needing the SCSI ID to be the same as the original?

    Yes, I believe that is exactly the problem. The original boot drive was on ID0 and the drive I cloned to was on ID1. So, when I remove both drives and replace the original with the clone it doesn't recognize the drive.

    Any suggestions?
