VSAN in Maintenance can't be off if one node is offline

Hello,

How can I put the remain node online. I try it with SwitchMaintenanceMode($false, $true) in powershell and it give "connection with partner node is invalid."

Greetings, PE.

Hello PE,
In the case of losing the partner node, you would need to move StarWind devices from maintenance manually:
- stop StarWind service on this node;
- open *HA.swdsk header in the folder with StarWind device you want to move from maintenance;
- find <maintenance_mode>true</maintenance_mode> string and change to <maintenance_mode>false</maintenance_mode> ;
- start StarWind service and mark the device as synchronized.

Thank you, Oleg, any of these step can be done using the powershell module?, I am using the free license.

Thank again, PE.

You need PowerShell only for the last step, mark the device as synchronized.
All other steps you can make with any version of StarWind.
