One disk is in node pool, not cluster pool when enable-clusters2d is run RRS feed

  • Question

  • 4 Node cluster configured. Attempting to create disk pool, but in every attempt, only 7 of 8 2TB HDDs show up in the pool.  (All 4 SSDs show up every time)

    These exact same drives were used for an earlier build and seemed to work well.  I have cleaned all drives using DiskPart.  I have swapped drives around between nodes, but I keep having one drive from Node 4 not show up when running Enable-ClusterS2D.

    Any ideas on how/why this may be taking place?  Can I somehow manually add the missing disk to the primordial pool after Enable-ClusterS2D finishes running?  Might it be a good idea to just swap the sata ports that the missing disk is on?

    PS:  the disk DOES show up BEFORE clusters2d

  • Hi Brikuz,

    I'm afraid I could not find any official document about the issue.

    Considering server 2016 is a preview version, some applications may not work properly. We could wait for the later updates and official documents.

    Best Regards,
