Description

The New-ClusterNameAccount cmdlet creates a cluster name account in Active Directory Domain Services. A cluster name account is also referred to as a cluster name object (CNO). This cmdlet changes the existing cluster name to match the cluster name account that it creates. If a cluster name account already exists for a cluster, this cmdlet has no effect.

Examples

Example 1: Create a cluster name account for the current cluster

PS C:\> New-ClusterNameAccount -Name "cluster_17" -Domain "production.contoso.com"

This command creates a cluster name account for the current cluster in the specified domain. The current cluster is the default value for the cluster on which this cmdlet operates.

Example 2: Create a cluster name account by using credentials

PS C:\> $Credential = Get-Credential
PS C:\> New-ClusterNameAccount -Name "cluster27" -Domain "production.contoso.com" -Credentials $Credential

The first command prompts you for credentials, and then stores them in the $Credential variable.

The second command creates a cluster name account for the current cluster in the specified domain. The command supplies the credentials stored in $Credential to access Active Directory Domain Services.
