Webinar: Windows Server 2019 in Action

So you’ve heard all about Windows Server 2019 – now you can see it in action in a live demo webinar on November 8th!

The last WS2019 webinar by Altaro was hugely popular with over 4,500 IT pros registering for the event. Feedback gathered from that webinar and the most popular features will now be discussed and tested live by Microsoft MVP Andy Syrewicze. And you’re invited!

This deep-dive webinar will focus on:

• Windows Admin Center

• Containers on Windows Server

• Storage Migration Service

• Windows Subsystem for Linux

• And more!

Demo webinars are a really great way to see a product in action before you decide to take the plunge yourself. It enables you to see the strengths and weaknesses first-hand and also ask questions that might relate specifically to your own environment.

With the demand so high, the webinar is presented live twice on November 8th to help as many people benefit as possible. The first session is at 2pm CET/8am EST/5am PST and the second is at 7pm CET/1pm EST/10am PST.

With the record number of attendees for the last webinar, some people were unable to attend the sessions which were maxed out. It is advised you save your seat early for this webinar to keep informed and ensure you don’t miss the live event.

Critical updates for S2D and Hyper-V

Microsoft released a new update for Windows Server 2016 (14393.2580) that fixes a bunch of critical issues in S2D and Hyper-V (FCI) environments:

  • Addresses an issue that depletes the storage space on a cluster-shared volume (CSV) because of a Hyper-V virtual hard disk (VHDX) expansion. As a result, a Virtual Machine (VM) might continue writing data to its disk until it becomes corrupted or stops working. The VM might also restart and then resume writing data until a corruption occurs.
  • Addresses an issue that occurs when using multiple Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V clusters. The following event appears in the log:

    “Cluster Shared Volume ‘CSVName’ (‘CSVName’) has entered a paused state because of ‘STATUS_USER_SESSION_DELETED(c0000203)’. All I/O will temporarily be queued until a path to the volume is reestablished.”

  • Addresses an issue that may cause the creation of a single node cluster or the addition of more nodes to a cluster to fail intermittently.
  • Addresses an issue that occurs when restarting a node after draining the node. Event ID 5120 appears in the log with a “STATUS_IO_TIMEOUT c00000b5” message. This may slow or stop input and output (I/O) to the VMs, and sometimes the nodes may drop out of cluster membership.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause the addition of nodes to fail intermittently after creating a single node in a Windows Server 2016 Cluster. The error code is, “0x0000001e”.

This update also resolves the following issues:

It’s highly recommended to apply the update as soon as possible.
