'(Get-Cluster).S2DBusTypes=0x100' RRS feed

  • Frage

  • I have an 8 node Hyper V Cluster with 3 * 1.8 TB unused drives in each (VMs on SAN) connected through a Dell Perc RAID Controller (hosts are dell 730s). cluster is running 2012 R2 but im in the process of upgrading to 2016.

    Now I would like to utilize these disks for my cluster.

    s2d doesnt support drives connected through RAID Controller, even though I can set the Conrtoller to pass through. it still reports as bus Type RAID in windows. 

    you can override that read out with the command in the topic but that is apparently unsupported but otherwise works just fine.

    real talk: I want to use this to have room for some additional(!) snapshots and VM Backups. How much of a risk would you guys say this really is? Im not going to put production VMs or any VMs at  all on that storage. But it would present a nice opportunity to have room for more backups just in case, temporary space for migrating data and so on.

    Again, im not using this for production workloads, but it will be part of a production cluster. Under these circumstances is it still a no go?

    edit: ok, sorry, dachte ich bin im englishen forum.

  • Hallo Sascha,

    Wenn du bei deinem produktiven Cluster der Support wichtig ist dann eindeutig Nein.
