  1. NTFS Signature Write

    Is there a public document that discusses the process used by a server to
    place a signature on a LUN when using NTFS?

    Thanks,

  2. Re: NTFS Signature Write

    Disk signatures get written to the LUN before the file system or partitions
    are created. Signatures are assigned when the O/S initializes the disk
    (manually in NT/2000, automatic in 2003) and written to the MBR. The
