Hey Checkyourlogs Fans,

Recently I have been deploying a lot of Storage Spaces Direct Configurations on Windows Server 2019. As many of you know, one of my favourite features of Windows Server 2019 is ReFS + Deduplication. Now, normally I
will just go to the Task Schedule under Deduplication and kick off the 1st Pass Dedup jobs once I get things setup and some data moved over. To my horror, my scheduled tasks were gone on the last cluster I setup.


I could go in via PowerShell and manually run them?

start-dedupjob -volume 'c:\clusterstorage\csv01' -type optimization -verbose


So where did they go?


This fix was so simple… Hunting around I found them inside of the Failover Cluster Scheduled Tasks.



I like easy fixes like this.

Have a great weekend,
