I recently ran into a situation where I wanted to start all over with the configuration of Storage Spaces Direct.
What had happend was that the Enable-ClusterS2D stopped at 59% for a long period of time before I desided to kill the process and start all over.
There are alot of good resources online to help you do that for instance “Completely Clearing an Existing Storage Spaces Configuration”
But some of the disks on the Servers where locked and reported Generic Physical Disk, Lost Communication.
I could not bring them online and couldnt clean them.
I then got an idea to uninstall the disks from Device Manager and then scan for hardware changes.
That released the lock and I could clean out the disks and start again.

First and foremost I would like to thank all of you that attended mine and Niklas presentation.
We had a really good time with some really interesting DevOps discussions before and after our presentation. The video of the presentation has been published and you can watch it on Channel 9 and all the other sessions as well.
Since the presentation screen was blanked out during most of our presentation we have decided to record it again. So stay tuned.
In the meantime you can get/view the PowerPoint slides here
