These instructions are for manual deployment of the Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2019, or Azure Stack HCI operating system on AX nodes from Dell Technologies. Unless otherwise specified, perform the steps on each physical node in the infrastructure that will be a part of Azure Stack HCI.
Note: The steps in the subsequent sections are applicable to either the full operating system or Server Core.
Note: The command output that is shown in the subsequent sections might show only Mellanox ConnectX-4 LX adapters as physical adapters. The output is shown only as an example.
Note: For the PowerShell commands in this section and subsequent sections that require a network adapter name, run the
Get-NetAdapter cmdlet to retrieve the correct value for the associated physical network port. The network adapter names that are used in the commands are shown only as examples; they might not represent the correct naming convention for the adapters in your system.
