comment Server 2012: how to plan for storage failover?
It's my understanding that by using a CSV as part of scale out file server, you're writing and reading to both SANs at the same time, and thus if one SAN goes down, it shouldn't matter because the CSV can still read and write data to the remaining san. So rather than using SAN replication, the OS is what's replicating the data across both SANs. I may not have it right but that's what I'm seeking to validate.

comment Server 2012: how to plan for storage failover?
no; my entire endeavor is to avoid that. My understanding is that with SMB 3 + Mulipath I/O + CSVs, I can use 2 LUNs on my two different EMC devices to create a CSV. The CSV should leverage SMB 3.0 transparent failover. See channel9.msdn.com/Events/IT-Camps/…

I believe you're correct. the -batch command also later allowed me to prove that my service account hadn't cached the key yet (which I did fix with PsExec). Thank you!

Interestingly enough, adding the -batch argument appeared to do better than tell me why it failed -- it actually appears to have made it start working! I see the output I expect to see in the log file. After some more testing I'm going to confirm this as the answer.

Hi arober, thanks for responding. using -v -i -noageant and a passwordless private key produced same results -- works perfectly from the console, works perfectly from command prompt calling powershell.exe C:\Path\To\Script.ps1 -- and hangs from a scheduled task. I don't see any output in the event log even with the -v flag.
