Monitor Checkdisk needed warning on Cluster Shared Volumes

Hi,

We are running a 2012R2 Hyper-v Cluster, I noticed that some CSV's displaying the error: Chkdsk scan needed on volume.
This is visable in the information pane of the disk overview in the Failover Cluster Manager.

I know how to solve this error, but I want to know how to monitor this error. I cant find this error in the eventviewer, Registery or Powershell. Does someone know how to find it with an automated process?

Regards,
Jasper

I'm not sure I've ever seen that one on all of the clusters we have set up and manage over the years.

Please thoroughly check the underlying disk subsystem for failing disks, controllers, or other messages in the logs.

That being said you can put the disk into maintenance mode and run the chkdsk /f on it via the owner node.

Please make sure your backup of the VMs on the questionable CSVs are backed up before doing this. Data loss is a very distinct possibility!!!

having this type of message definitely implies something is wrong in the underlying disk subsystem as I've not seen chkdsk required except with a potential disk failure.

I Checked the San file system, but all disks are allright.

I still cant find a way to check on these errors, otherwise than the GUI.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Then please follow through on my recommended steps to run chkdsk on the volume.

Make sure there is a known good backup.

The only way that I know of is to run chkdsk against the affected volume.

There may also be some Event Log entries that specifically mention the volume and possibly read and/or write errors happening to it.
