    Windows disk signatures destroying datastores?

    rickardnobel Virtuoso User Moderators

      I have heard somewhere that certain versions of Windows aggresively signed all disks it detected, which could cause severe problems in a SAN enviroment. As if a LUN carrying a VMFS datastore was not masked away correctly from a physical Windows server it could destroy it by writing a disk signature in the MBR.

       

      Can anyone confirm if this has been a problem?

       

      And what versions of Windows server that has this behavior? I do not belive they do this anymore, but from what version? 2000/2003?
