Remote disk management

Using Disk Management, you can remotely manage disks on another computer in your network. To manage disks that are connected to remote computers, you must be a member of the Backup Operators group or Administrators group on both the local and remote computers. In addition, the user account and both computers must be members of the same domain or within trusted domains.

Mirrored volumes, RAID-5 volumes, and GUID partition table (GPT) disks are not available on all versions of Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 operating systems. The types of volumes and disks you can create depend on the operating system running on the remote computer, not the local computer. For example, you can use a local computer running Windows XP Professional to create mirrored and RAID-5 volumes on a remote computer that is running Windows 2000 Server, Windows 2000 Advanced Server, Windows 2000 Datacenter Server, or Windows Server 2003 operating systems.

For information on administering the disk system on another computer, see Manage disks on a remote computer.
