I am setting up a server with Windows Server 2016 and Software RAID. I have 2xCrucial mx500 960GB SSD drives. I have installed Windows server 2016 but now I am unable to enable the disk mirroring. I am getting following error message:

 The disk could not be converted to dynamic because security is enabled on one or more partitions. 

I am able to convert the unused drive to dynamic but the primary drive is failed with above message. Any help would be appreciate.

As far I know you will not be able to convert the disk to dynamic if the operating system is installed on the disk. There can be third party software which can help you but if this is a new server without any data, you should find the way to set the disk as dynamic before OS installation. I believe this should allow you make the disk dynamic before OS installation and later you can enable disk mirroring after operating system installation.
