Windows Admin Center with Storage Spaces Direct

Hi

I have just configured Windows Admin Center (WAC) on a server with the intention of allowing our helpdesk to use this to manage our Hyper-V Cluster. This is a 3 node cluster that connects to a Storage Spaces Direct (S2D)cluster via SMB. Both clusters and running Windows Server 2019. I have come accross numerous posts where people found the SDDC resource used by WAC could crash the RHS process causing instability of the cluster. I am only allowing access to the Hyper-V compute cluster via WAC but the disks are obviously stored on the S2D cluster so concerned about experiencing similar issues. Has anyone had any similar issues using WAC to manage S2D clusters?

Thanks

Hello Alistair,

Storage Spaces Direct uses industry-standard servers with local-attached drives to create highly available, highly scalable software-defined storage at a fraction of the cost of traditional SAN or NAS arrays.

Its converged or hyper-converged architecture radically simplifies procurement and deployment, while features such as caching, storage tiers, and erasure coding, together with the latest hardware innovations such as RDMA networking and NVMe drives, deliver unrivaled efficiency and performance.


In order to Troubleshoot the issue do have a look at the below link,
