As 2018 is in the logbooks I thought it was time to do a short summary of what has happened in 2018 that is worth mentioning. It has been pretty good, with mostly positive things but a few “setbacks”.Read more
Just before christmas I was asked how one should patch a cluster that has not been patched in over a year. The answer to that question is a bit tricky but I will help to guide you and tell you the pros and cons of doing it in the 2 ways that was tried on 2 different clusters.Read more

As I’m not going, and a bit glad as I have a huge task at home fixing things up after a water leak in the roof. But sad as I see people now heading for Ignite on Twitter. Thinking for myself, stop posting those posts 🙂
I wanted to share the sessions I will be trying to watch live and watch on demand after, I will separate them into the different solutions and post them pr day. As the schedule for live streaming is not yet available for those of us not going to Ignite.Read more
I have been quite on the blog front for a while as when we got home from summer holiday in early August we had lots of water in the 2nd floor bathroom floor which had run down a crack in the floor into the living room underneath. So I have spent almost every free hour after that figuring out where the water was coming from by removing walls. And finding a lot of rot in the construction where the water came in. And the water damage in the living room also kicked off a total renovation of the living room. As the insurance does not cover everything we will need to do some stuff our self.
But today i found some time to write this blog post for you, and it’s about Upgrading your S2D cluster to 2019 🙂Read more
Lately we have seen alot of Event ID 5120 with a status code of STATUS_IO_TIMEOUT or STATUS_CONNECTION_DISCONNECTED during rebooting a node.
Here is a statement from Microsoft about the issue and what to do when rebooting a node.
So VMM 1807 was just released yesterday and there is not a lot of new features in this version, as I think the VMM team is focusing on support for RS5(2019) and new features for it.

In this post we will talk about how to extend your existing S2D cluster and what to think about when extending a S2D cluster.
In my previous post we built a 4 Node S2D cluster based on the following HW
Hi everyone, I am back with another Storage Spaces Direct post. This time I would like to talk to you about planning S2D clusters from 2 node to a 16 node cluster. What you need to think about when doing your planning. This will be a multi part series covering 4 nodes, adding additional nodes. All Flash, Hybrid, MRV and the big one a 16 Node setup.
So i have been working on this case for about 4 weeks. Where a client have been having issues with CSV’s becoming unhealthy and Cache drives going into Lost Communication during backup. We have a MS Support case but as the client do not have Premier Support it’s taking a while to get trough 1st line and getting it escalated.
