  1. [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 Well, MMC FCM is so outdated, than most clustering functionality accessible only thru PowerShell.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.

  6. [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.

  8. [BUG] Cluster Network Adapter Missing

    In Windows Admin Center for HCI, whenever I reboot a cluster node, the remaining nodes will report a warning that says "The server 'servername' has missing network adapter(s) connected to cluster network 'Cluster Network 1'."

    This warning will clear node by node during a reboot. But once I reboot again, the warning will come back until another complete cluster reboot.

  9. If the keywords specified in the cluster validation are localized, it will guess that Cluster Creation will not work.

    In Windows Admin Center 1910.2, I installed Cluster Creation 1.2.0 and confirmed creation of Classic Failover Cluster.
    The Japanese version of Windows Server 2019 cannot perform cluster validation.
    The English version of Windows Server 2019 can perform cluster validation.
    If the keywords specified in the cluster validation are localized, it will guess that Cluster Creation will not work.

  14. [FCM] [CSV] Add CSV management in Failover Cluster solution

    Currently it is not possible to add disk to CSV using the Failover Cluster solution. So you have to use Failover Cluster MMC or PowerShell.

    Please add the functionality to manage CSVs in the Failover Cluster solution.

  15. [Cluster Creation preview] [BUG] [BLOCKER] creating a failover cluster fails at "renaming nic"

    tested 1910.2
    try to create a failover cluster e.g. for Hyper-V
    The wizard works great at the beginning but has serious issues if it does not find network adapters to configure.(Webpage loads eternally or hangs). Workaround reload: WAC Cluster Creation

    If there are network adapters it does want rename them (no option to skip this) and fails at this step.

    From this part on you cannot use the wizard anymore and need to fall back to Failover Cluster Management mmc.

  17. Reboot / shutdown option on paused node in Cluster view

    Please include reboot / shutdown option on paused node in cluster view. it will make maintenance on nodes easier, will be very helpful on multi node Hyper-V cluster so that one will not reboot any running hype-v node mistakenly without moving VMs to other Hyper-V nodes in Cluster.

    This is fixed in Windows Admin Center Preview v1806.

    In v1804, this workaround should resolve the issue:

    Run Add-ClusterResource -Name ‘SDDC Management’ -Group ‘Cluster Group’ -ResourceType ‘SDDC Management’ replacing ‘Cluster Group’ with the localized name, for example, ‘Group du cluster’ in French.

  20. [Bug] Can't connect ti Hyper-V Converged Cluster

    I've installed Windows Admin Center with high availability following https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/manage/windows-admin-center/deploy/high-availability.

    I can connect to nodes in the cluster fine through WAC, however when I try to add the cluster it says it can't find the name.

    If I click on one of the nodes it gives the FQDN of the cluster, I click it and it adds it as a connection but when I try to access it, it complains that WINRM couldn't not process the operation.

    I've tried it with two different clusters on our network.
