Examples

Example 1

This example creates a clustered print server using Cluster Disk 5, and assigns a default name.

PS C:\>Add-ClusterPrintServerRole -Storage "Cluster Disk 5"
Name                       OwnerNode                                      State 
----                       ---------                                      ----- 
cluster1PS                 node1                                         Online 

Example 2

This example creates a clustered print server using Cluster Disk 5, and assigns the name MyPrintServer.

PS C:\>Add-ClusterPrintServerRole -Storage "Cluster Disk 5" -Name MyPrintServer
Name                       OwnerNode                                      State
