Rolling Upgrade (1-by-1)
The recommended way to upgrade a Storage Spaces Direct (S2D) cluster is Cluster Aware Updating (CAU). CAU orchestrates the restart of nodes and cares about the volume state (degraded or not) before upgrading a node. For the operating system upgrade, Microsoft has developped Rolling Cluster Upgrade (RCU) that enables adding nodes with a different OS version inside the same cluster.
