Stop-ClusterNode

Stops the Cluster service on a node in a failover cluster.

Syntax

Stop-ClusterNode
    [[-Name] <StringCollection>]
    [-Cluster <String>]
    [-Confirm]
    [-InputObject <PSObject>]
    [-Wait <Int32>]
    [-WhatIf]
    [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Stop-ClusterNode cmdlet stops the Cluster service on a node in a failover cluster. If stopping the node brings the cluster below quorum, the operation is not permitted. To stop the cluster, use the Stop-Cluster cmdlet instead.

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

Examples

Example 1: Stop Cluster service on a local cluster node

PS C:\> Stop-ClusterNode -Name "node3"
Name                                                                      State 
----                                                                      ----- 
node3                                                                      Down

This example stops the Cluster service on the node named node3 of the local cluster.

Example 2: Stop Cluster service on a cluster node

PS C:\> Stop-ClusterNode -Name "node1" -Cluster "cluster2"
Name                                                                      State 
----                                                                      ----- 
node1                                                                      Down

This example stops the Cluster service on the node named node1 on the cluster named cluster2.

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
-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:cf
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InputObject

Specifies the cluster node to stop.

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

Specifies the name of the cluster node to stop.

Type:StringCollection
Position:0
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
-WhatIf

Shows what would happen if the cmdlet runs. The cmdlet is not run.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:wi
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
