  2. [Cluster] [FCM] Cluster Management tools for Honolulu

    Currently, in Cluster interface there is no way to add node, evict node, change witness mode or even generate/view Validation Report.

    Suppose, Honolulu targeted to replace legacy tools? Well, MMC FCM is so outdated, than most clustering functionality accessible only thru PowerShell. Donno, why at least this old "still used by everyone" tool functionality still don't exported to Honolulu, before anything else.

  3. [Cluster create] Cluster Creation fails with 1910

    When attempting to add two new Windows Server 2019 nodes with nothing else besides updates and one Management IP, I get this error message:

  4. [Cluster] [FCM] More disk info in Failover Cluster Management

    In Failover Cluster Manager, the Disks panel shows the disk name but not the mount point and the Virtual Machines panel shows the VHD's path, but not the Cluster Disk name. It's not possible to cross information. It would be very useful to have the mount point on the Disks panel and the Cluster Disks names of the VM resources.

  11. [Cluster] [CSV] Full CSV management cycle in one place

    Now, you can's initialize new disk for cluster using FCM. You must use either MMC, or RSAT Server Manager (SM) or PoSh.
    You can't add initialized disk to cluster-available using MMC.
    You can't create volume on cluster-storage using FCM.
    You can't re-format available disk using FCM.
    You can't remove volume using FCM.
    You can choose all dedup options only using PoSh.
    You can do CSV-repair only using PoSh.

    You can't do almost anything using Honolulu 1802. Please, add full management. Please, do it before adding S2D back to next semi-annual Server Core release.

  16. [Bug] [Cluster] Virtual Machines and SCVMM

    Hi All,

    small issue in the Failover Cluster Manager's Virtual Machine tab. It not list all the VMs.

    VMs created using SCVMM are listed under Roles as "SCVMM <machine name> Resources" For example "SCVMM TESTVM001 Resources".
    But they are not listed under "Virtual Machine". Only VM named as "<machine name>" only (for example VMTEST002) are displayed.

    Looks like a small bug. All the VMs are identified as "Virtual Machines" in the Roles tab.

    Add the Failover cluster role to all 10 servers at once.

    Install file server services to multiple hosts at once, etc.
