- Run the Test-Cluster cmdlet.
Test-Cluster -Node S2Dnode01, S2DNode02,
S2dNode03, S2dNode04 -Include 'Storage Spaces Direct', 'Inventory',
'Network', 'System Configuration'
The Test-Cluster cmdlet generates an HTML report of all performed validations and includes a summary of the validations. Review this report, resolve all warnings and errors before creating a cluster.
Run the Get-PhysicalDisk command on all cluster nodes. Verify the output to ensure that all disks are in the healthy state and that the nodes have an equal number of disks. Verify that the nodes have homogenous hardware configuration.
Ensure all nodes are reachable using the IPs set in the previous step. Create a cluster using the New-Cluster cmdlet.
New-Cluster -Name clusterName -Node node1,node2,node3,node4 -StaticAddress 192.168.11.100 -NoStorage -Verbose
