Storage Spaces Direct should be configurable from Failover Cluster Manager UI
PowerShell and SCVMM management are not sufficient for management - this feature should be 100% configurable from Failover Cluster Manager UI (cluadmin.exe)
Very old post & believe its in there now.
Also check out windows Admin Center.

SCVMM is part of SC, is unfree, is overblown for small environments.
Powershell is OK if you want to convert all Windows admins to Linux-like scripting freaks.
No, thanks, Windows stays for its name. Literally.

I'd be happy with a good PowerShell commandlet set. :)

This is already posible in TP2 you only need to set the "dasenable" in PowerShell the pool creation and making is already the Failover Manager.and working

@Jeff :: The problem with SCVMM is that it is a pain to install and operate. The problem with PowerShell is the learning curve - and also how do you know if it's working correctly? Run a PowerShell query on a regular basis to check that the status looks okay? Much better to have a UI that quickly shows me all of the options and can also tell me if the disks and enclosures are working correctly or not. It is not perfect, but the Failover Cluster Manager is the best UI experience that Microsoft has for HA, and it does not require a separate install or license.

John, can you elaborate why SCVMM and PowerShell isn't sufficient? Thanks, -Jeff Woolsey, MS Cloud and Enterprise
