The following Demo are performed in a S2D test environment with 6 Cluster Nodes.
Each Node have 5 SSDs used for the Storage Pool.
If you dont have access to Physical Lab Servers you can use WSLab and get some more information from the Scenarios
Remove Node from Cluster. Retire the Disk before the Node is removed.
(Note: The Node have a Hardware problem so it only list 4 of 5 SSDs and need to be replaced)
Know you Columns count and free Disk space, before you start to remove Disk/Nodes.
- 6x5=30 Physical Disk
- 3x8=24 Disk used for every Extents
Before we remote the Node we create a new vDisk to follow the Extents
New-Volume -StoragePoolFriendlyName S2D* -FriendlyName vDisk4 -FileSystem CSVFS_ReFS -ProvisioningType Fixed -Size 200GB -Verbose
$VirtualDisk4 = Get-VirtualDisk "vDisk4"
$Extents4 = Get-VirtualDisk "vDisk4" | Get-PhysicalExtent | Where VirtualDiskUniqueId -Eq $VirtualDisk4.UniqueId
$Extents4 | Group OperationalStatus -NoElement
$Extents4 | Group CopyNumber -NoElement
$Extents4 | Group Size -NoElement
# Show the first Columns of Extents and Copyes (8x3=24)
Get-VirtualDisk "vDisk4" | Get-PhysicalExtent | Select-Object -First 24
|The Cluster Node S047023 have some problems with one Physical Disk (The node only list 4 of the 5 Disks installed and need to be replaced)|
|Node S047023 only list the 4 of 5 diske. All 4 Disk are listed as Retired|
|After the Physical Disk have 0% of the Extents (Only 4 of 5 listed do to Hardware Problem and the Node need to be replaced)|
