Add-NlbClusterNode

Brian Lich|Last Updated: 3/31/2017

SYNOPSIS

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

SYNTAX

NonPipeline (Default)

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

Pipeline

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

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.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Add a new node to an NLB cluster

PS C:\>Get-NlbCluster "Node001" | Add-NlbClusterNode -NewNodeName "Node002" -NewNodeInterface "Vlan-3"
Name                State               Interface           HostID 
----                -----               ---------           ------ 
node2               Converged           vlan-3              2

This command adds the host named Node002 to the cluster on the node named Node001 using the interface named Vlan-3.
