S2D - add NVDIMM-N to Storage Pool

Hi!

 

I've got an all-certified 6-node HP Cluster with NVMe and NVDIMM. I've already set up the Cluster and created a storage pool, with following warning: "No disks found to be used for cache".

So I tried to manually add the NVDIMMs to the Pool but got following error:

 

PS C:\> $PDToAdd = Get-PhysicalDisk -CanPool $True
PS C:\> $PDToAdd

FriendlyName         SerialNumber          CanPool OperationalStatus HealthStatus Usage           Size

Thanks for any hint on this!
