And another good day to everyone!
It has been busy for me, busier than it has been in a few years now. While it can annoy, it still is a good sign so I am hoping it will stay this busy.
Anyhow, that of course is not the reason I made this post. Today will be all about checking physical disks and their RAID status through Powershell.
Another quick Powershell script.
Even though it is already 2020, there are still enough servers with older disks capable of slowing down because of fragmentation.
So, how can we make sure we stay up to date on the fragmentation?
This time a niche script for those customers that use terminal/remote desktop servers with User Profile Disks.
For people unsure about what User Profile Disks (UPD's) are. They are profile folders located on for example a file server that get loaded onto a terminal server the moment the user it belongs to logs in. These contain the user-data files (documents, appdata etc. etc.). This saves space and allows you to easier set limits to how big their profile is allowed to be.
However .. problems can arise at times and if a UPD gets stuck on one of the terminal servers while the user gets directed to a different one (giving that employee constant temporary profiles) it can get annoying real quick to find out where it is stuck (as usually the best way is to manually disconnect the disk from the server), especially when you have multiple servers with 10+ users on it.
