Add-NlbClusterNode

Add-NlbClusterNode

microsoft.networkloadbalancingclusters.powershell.dll

Synopsis

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

Syntax

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

Add-NlbClusterNode [-NewNodeName] [-NewNodeInterface] [-Force] [-InputObject] [<CommonParameters>]

Detailed 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.

To check the state of all cluster nodes, use the Get-NlbClusterNode cmdlet. If a configuration change results in the cluster nodes remaining in perpetual convergence, refer to the event log to resolve the configuration inconsistency between the cluster nodes.

Parameters

-Force <SwitchParameter>

Runs the cmdlet without prompting for confirmation. By default the cmdlet asks for confirmation from the user before proceeding.

Examples

EXAMPLE 1

This example adds the host named node2 to the cluster on the node named node1.

PS C:\>Get-NlbCluster node1 | Add-NlbClusterNode -NewNodeName node2 -NewNodeInterface vlan-3
Name                State               Interface           HostID 
----                -----               ---------           ------ 
node2               Converged           vlan-3              2
