Description

The Remove-NlbClusterNode cmdlet removes a node from the Network Load Balancing (NLB) cluster. Once a node is removed, NLB will redistribute the client traffic among the remaining servers 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: Remove the current machine from the local cluster with confirmation

PS C:\>Remove-NlbClusterNode

This command removes the current machine from the local cluster after seeking confirmation from the user.

Example 2: Remove a cluster node from the local cluster without confirmation

PS C:\>Remove-NlbClusterNode -HostName "Node004" -Force

This command removes the cluster node named Node004 from the local cluster without seeking user confirmation.

Required Parameters

-InputObject

Specifies the cluster node that this cmdlet removes.

Type:Node[]
Position:Named
