Add-ClusterDisk

Add-ClusterDisk

Make a new disk available for use in a failover cluster. The disk (LUN) must be exposed to all nodes in the failover cluster, and should not be exposed to any other servers.

Syntax

Add-ClusterDisk [-InputObject] <ClusterDiskInfo[]> [<CommonParameters>]
  • InputObject

Detailed Description

When adding a disk, make sure that the configuration of the storage allows the operating system to recognize and mount the disk as needed. The disk must be a basic disk (not a dynamic disk) and should not be exposed to servers outside the cluster. The cmdlet Get-ClusterAvailableDisk gets information about disks that you can add to the cluster.

Parameters

Specifies the list of shared disks to add to the cluster. The list of disks is generated with the Get-ClusterAvailableDisk cmdlet.

Data Type: ClusterDiskInfo[]
