Add-ClusterServerRole

Creates a highly available basic server that contains only a client access point and storage.

Syntax

Add-ClusterServerRole
   [[-Name] <String>]
   [-Cluster <String>]
   [-IgnoreNetwork <StringCollection>]
   [-InputObject <PSObject>]
   [-StaticAddress <StringCollection>]
   [-Storage <StringCollection>]
   [-Wait <Int32>]

Description

The Add-ClusterServerRole cmdlet creates a highly available basic server that contains only a client access point and storage. After adding the basic server, other resources can be added to create a functional clustered role.

Note: This cmdlet cannot be run remotely without Credential Security Service Provider (CredSSP) authentication on the server computer.

Examples

Example 1

PS C:\>Add-ClusterServerRole
Name                       OwnerNode                            State 
----                       ---------                            ----- 
cluster1Other              node2                               Online

This example establishes a default name for a clustered server. It does not specify any storage. Storage and other resources can be added later.

Example 2

PS C:\>Add-ClusterServerRole -Storage "Cluster Disk 3" -Name MainSrv1
Name                       OwnerNode                            State 
----                       ---------                            ----- 
MainSrv1                   node2                               Online

This example creates a clustered service or application using Cluster Disk 3, and assigns the name MainSrv1.

Example 3

PS C:\>Add-ClusterServerRole -Storage "Cluster Disk 4","Cluster Disk 5" -Name MainSrv2
Name                       OwnerNode                            State 
----                       ---------                            ----- 
MainSrv2                   node2                               Online

This example creates a clustered service or application using Cluster Disk 4 and Cluster Disk 5, and assigns the name MainSrv2.

Optional Parameters

-Cluster

Specifies the name of the cluster on which to run this cmdlet. If the input for this parameter is . or it is omitted, then the cmdlet runs on the local cluster.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-IgnoreNetwork

Specifies one or more networks to ignore when running the cmdlet. Networks with DHCP enabled are always included, but other networks need a static address to be specified using the StaticAddress parameter or should be explicitly ignored with this IgnoreNetwork parameter.

Type:StringCollection
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InputObject

Specifies the cluster on which to create the highly available role or application.

Type:PSObject
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Name

Specifies the name of the highly available server to create.

Type:String
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-StaticAddress

Specifies one or more static addresses to use when running the cmdlet. Networks with DHCP enabled are always included, but other networks need a static address to be specified using the StaticAddress parameter or should be explicitly ignored with this IgnoreNetwork parameter.

Type:StringCollection
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Storage

Specifies the cluster disk resource to be added to the created highly available server.

Type:StringCollection
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Wait

Specifies the time in seconds to wait for the cmdlet. If the Wait parameter is not specified, then the cmdlet waits for completion. If -Wait 0 is specified, then the call is initiated and the cmdlet returns without waiting.

Type:Int32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
