When I add a new Windows 2016 node to the cluster, must the "add all eligible storage to cluster" be checked or not?

    Hi,

    The option means if there's any eligible storage, it will add to the cluster during the cluster creation.

    It's not "must", we can add the storage into the cluster later:

    Thanks for your time!
