If you use storage spaces that use the parity resiliency type and then install this release of Windows Server 2012, the data in those storage spaces will not be accessible. To avoid this, back up data stored in those storage spaces and delete the storage spaces before installing this release. After installation is complete, re-create the storage spaces and restore the data.
Storage spaces that are not in the “healthy” state prior to installing this release may never complete repair operations after installation. To avoid this, ensure that repair operations have completed on all storage spaces and they are in the “healthy” state prior to installation. You can check the health of a storage space with the HealthStatus property reported by the Get-VirtualDisk Windows PowerShell cmdlet. command.
If you delete a clustered storage pool, cluster resources which depend on the storage pool will go offline and may become permanently unavailable. To avoid this, only delete a clustered storage pool when it is on a node with the cluster resource for the pool in the “online” state.
