Before proceeding with operational management of the cluster, Dell Technologies recommends that you validate the cluster deployment, verify that the infrastructure is operational, and, if needed, activate the operating system license.
- Run the test-Cluster cmdlet to generate a cluster validation report:
Test-Cluster -Node S2DNode01, S2DNode02, S2DNode03, S2DNode04 -Include 'System Configuration', 'Inventory', 'Network', 'Storage Spaces Direct'
This command generates an HTML report with a list of all the tests that were performed and completed without errors.
- If the operating system was not factory-installed, activate the operating system license.
By default, the operating system is installed in the evaluation mode. For information about activating the operating system license as well as the management and operational aspects for the Azure Stack HCI solution, see the Operations Guide—Managing and Monitoring the Solution Infrastructure Life Cycle.
