Stop-ClusterNode

Brian Lich|Last Updated: 3/28/2017

SYNOPSIS

Stops the Cluster service on a node in a failover cluster.

SYNTAX

Stop-ClusterNode [[-Name] <StringCollection>] [-Wait <Int32>] [-InputObject <PSObject>] [-Cluster <String>]
 [-WhatIf] [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Stop-ClusterNode cmdlet stops the Cluster service on a node in a failover cluster. If stopping the node brings the cluster below quorum, the operation is not permitted. To stop the cluster, use the Stop-Cluster cmdlet instead.

Note: This cmdlet cannot be run remotely without Credential Security Service Provider (CredSSP) authentication on the server computer.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Stop Cluster service on a local cluster node

PS C:\> Stop-ClusterNode -Name "node3"
Name                                                                      State 
----                                                                      ----- 
node3                                                                      Down

This example stops the Cluster service on the node named node3 of the local cluster.

Example 2: Stop Cluster service on a cluster node

PS C:\> Stop-ClusterNode -Name "node1" -Cluster "cluster2"
Name                                                                      State 
----                                                                      ----- 
node1                                                                      Down

This example stops the Cluster service on the node named node1 on the cluster named cluster2.

PARAMETERS

-Cluster

Specifies the name of the cluster on which to run this cmdlet. If the input for this parameter is . or it is omitted, then the cmdlet runs on the local cluster.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: cf

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: False
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-InputObject

Specifies the cluster node to stop.

Type: PSObject
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Name

Specifies the name of the cluster node to stop.

Type: StringCollection
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: 0
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Wait

Specifies the time in seconds to wait for the cmdlet. If the Wait parameter is not specified, then the cmdlet waits for completion. If -Wait 0 is specified, then the call is initiated and the cmdlet returns without waiting.

Type: Int32
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-WhatIf

Shows what would happen if the cmdlet runs. The cmdlet is not run.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: wi

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: False
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

CommonParameters

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -InformationAction, -InformationVariable, -OutVariable, -OutBuffer, -PipelineVariable, -Verbose, -WarningAction, and -WarningVariable. For more information, see about_CommonParameters.
