Examples

EXAMPLE 1

This example starts all cluster nodes on the local cluster.

PS C:\>Start-Cluster

This example starts all cluster nodes on the cluster of which the node named node2 is a part. A node name is required if all cluster nodes are stopped. If the cluster is already running, then the cluster name, assuming the cluster name resource is online, can be used instead of the node name.
