Add-NlbClusterNode

Adds a new node to the Network Load Balancing (NLB) cluster.

Syntax

Add-NlbClusterNode
   [-NewNodeName] <String>
   [-NewNodeInterface] <String>
   [-Force]
   [-HostName <String>]
   -InterfaceName <String>
   [<CommonParameters>]
Add-NlbClusterNode
   [-NewNodeName] <String>
   [-NewNodeInterface] <String>
   [-Force]
   -InputObject <Cluster[]>
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Add-NlbClusterNode cmdlet adds a new node to the Network Load Balancing (NLB) cluster. Once the new node settings are circulated through all of the NLB cluster nodes, the new cluster node will be in a running state in the cluster.

This cmdlet changes the configuration on all cluster nodes. As a result, the NLB cluster will have to restart the convergence process on all nodes to guarantee that configuration changes have been applied on all nodes and that a consistent state is reached. Any additional operations on the NLB cluster should not be initiated until all cluster nodes have completed the convergence process and are back to the converged state.

Examples

Example 1: Add a new node to an NLB cluster

PS C:\>Get-NlbCluster "Node001" | Add-NlbClusterNode -NewNodeName "Node002" -NewNodeInterface "Vlan-3"
Name                State               Interface           HostID 
----                -----               ---------           ------ 
node2               Converged           vlan-3              2

This command adds the host named Node002 to the cluster on the node named Node001 using the interface named Vlan-3.

Required Parameters

-InputObject

Specifies an array of clusters to which the node is added.

Type:Cluster[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName, ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InterfaceName

Specifies the interface to which NLB is bound. This is the interface of the cluster against which this cmdlet is run.

Type:String
Aliases:Interface, IN, I
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-NewNodeInterface

Specifies the interface name on the new cluster node.

Type:String
Aliases:NewInterface, NI
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-NewNodeName

Specifies the name of the new cluster node.

Type:String
Aliases:NewNode, NN
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-Force

Forces the command to run without asking for user confirmation.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:F
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-HostName

Specifies the name of the cluster host against which this cmdlet is run. If this parameter is omitted or a value of . is entered, then the local cluster is assumed.

Type:String
Aliases:Host, HN, H
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
