Microsoft: don’t reset your Server Manager disk, you could lose all your data

Software



Microsoft has acknowledged an issue with its Server Manager management console, causing IT admins to inadvertently wipe the wrong virtual disks, potentially erasing important data from company servers.

Describing the issue in a support document (opens in new tab), the company said: “when you use the Community Virtual driver, there are virtual disks that might have the same UniqueId. This might create issues when you initiate a reset operation. The reset operation will reset the first disk that it finds. However, this might not be the disk you want to reset. Because of this, that disk will lose data.”
