Dell and Microsoft clustered Storage Spaces on PowerEdge VRTX

Dell recently published a blog, where they explained Clustered Storage Spaces support with PowerEdge VRTX. Please be aware that Dell not supports Storage Spaces on VRTX because it’s uses a shared RAID Controller.

To read more about the requirements for Storage Spaces please consult MSDN and read blogpost “How to Configure a Clustered Storage Space in Windows Server 2012

Please remember, if you want to run your cluster on a shared RAID (maybe for Hyper-V) or Direct Attached Storage you need to configure it in Windows registry. You can find my PowerShell Script, to configure it here.

Thank you Paul giving me advice on my mistake ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Flo, VRTX doesn’t support Storage Spaces. Storage Spaces requires a JBOD without a RAID controller. VRTX does not support this type of storage option. Please refer to the blog listed on MSDN in my original blog.
