Dell Storage with Microsoft Storage Spaces Deployment Guide

Windows configuration

Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard Edition or Datacenter Edition is installed on your server depending on your solution. Alternatively, if you are using a volume license, ensure that the OS is properly installed, all hardware has the necessary firmware and drivers, and continue to follow the deployment steps below.

After turning on each server, configure iDRAC to enable remote management of the server outside the OS. After the system starts, you must accept the end user license agreement (EULA), enter a local administrator password, and then activate the OS by using the license key provided with each server.

  • NOTE: Repeat all the tasks in this section on each server node.
  • CAUTION: When using a volume license, ensure that the correct drivers and firmware are available before proceeding with the deployment. After reinstalling your OS certain components like the Chipset driver must be downloaded.
