Remove-NlbClusterNode

Removes a node from the Network Load Balancing (NLB) cluster.

Syntax

Parameter Set: NonPipeline
Remove-NlbClusterNode [[-HostName] <String> ] [-Force] [-InterfaceName <String> ] [-PassThru] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: Pipeline
Remove-NlbClusterNode -InputObject <Node[]> [-Force] [-PassThru] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed 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.

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

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