Hi everyone,

in behalf of Altaro, I would like to a free Webinar with three top of the edge speaker around Microsoft Software Defined Datacenter.

The transition to adopting cloud services is unique for every organization. What does yours look like?

Join Microsoft MVPs Andy Syrewicze (Technical Evangelist – Altaro), Didier Van Hoye (Infrastructure Architect – FGIA), and Thomas Maurer (Cloud Architect – itnetX) for a crash course on the possibilities of cloud technologies coming out of Microsoft including:

  • Windows Server 2019 and the Software-Defined Datacenter
  • New Management Experiences for Infrastructure with Windows Admin Center
  • Hosting an Enterprise Grade Cloud in your datacenter with Azure Stack
  • Taking your first steps into the public cloud with Azure IaaS

Speaking at Cloud & Datacenter Conference Germany

Hey everybody,

this week I got a mail from Carsten Rachfahl the inventor and host of the Cloud & Datacenter Conference Germany. The CDC is one of the biggest IT Conferences in Germany and Carsten offered me a Speaker slot at his conference 🙂

I’m so proud that I match Carsten’s high quality standards and will be able to share some knowledge about Microsoft Azure. The topic I’m speaking about isn’t completely clear yet but I think it will be Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute and Azure Networking. 🙂

Using shared VHDx for guest clustering on a storage with no support for Microsoft Cluster & virtualization

Hi everybody,

last weekend my friend Udo Walberer and I had some struggles when setting up a guest cluster with shared VHDx as cluster volumes. We weren’t able to get it work.

We were able to connect the VHDx and to configure it as cluster volume but after a reboot the VMs weren’t starting and we get following failure:

svhdx

 

So after some research wie figured out that the storage which he was using had no support for Microsoft Clustering and Virtualisation as well as Persistent Reservation. After we tested on a supported storage all was fine.

So please before you try to use shared VHDx, check if you storage is supported for some options.

The two screenshots below show you two synology storages, first one without those support and second with support.
