I think you just restart it and hit any key to skip the disk check when the screen shows up.

How about booting into the recovery console or command line and run CHKNTFS /X volume.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I would suggested to wait until the scan of the disks completed (just to be sure the disks are okay) and then make sure that Chkdsk.exe or Autochk.exe are not scheduled or configured for automatic start: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/831426 

Hope it helps.

If it starts, I think you can hit the ESC key to stop it.

@nobus:

Removing the dirty flag is correct and I didn't want to intrude upon that advice. The dirty flag is usually raised upon a hard reboot of the server.

So, what raised the dirty flag in the first place? Could this be a hard shutdown of the server, (meaning the power switch was toggled off/on without providing an excuse to the server for shutdown)?

We might refer this back to the author to find out what caused the dirty flag, like a power outage of hard boot of the server. Otherwise, they may lower the dirty flag and go back to business as usual. They may toggle the off/on switch and raise the flag again, giving the false impression that it was never resolved by your excellent advice.
