Add-ClusterDisk

Add-ClusterDisk

Makes a new disk available for use in a failover cluster.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Add-ClusterDisk [-InputObject] <PSObject[]> [-Cluster <String> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Add-ClusterDisk cmdlet makes 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.

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 Get-ClusterAvailableDisk cmdlet gets information about disks that you can add to the cluster.

Parameters

-Cluster<String>

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.


Aliases

named

Default Value

none

Accept Pipeline Input?

false

Accept Wildcard Characters?

false

-InputObject<PSObject[]>

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

<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.

Inputs

The input type is the type of the objects that you can pipe to the cmdlet.

  • Microsoft.FailoverClusters.PowerShell.ClusterDiskInfo
  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance

    This object is output from the Get-Disk and the Get-VirtualDisk cmdlets.


  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#ROOT/Microsoft/Windows/Storage/MSFT_Disk

    The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.


  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#ROOT/Microsoft/Windows/Storage/MSFT_VirtualDisk

    The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.


Outputs

The output type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

  • Microsoft.FailoverClusters.PowerShell.ClusterResource

Examples

Example 1: Add available disks to the Available Storage group

This example identifies the disks that are ready to be added to the cluster, and then adds them to Available Storage cluster group.


PS C:\> Get-ClusterAvailableDisk | Add-ClusterDisk

Example 2: Add a specific available disk to Available Storage

This example examines disks that are ready to be added to the cluster, finds the disk with a specific SCSI address, and adds it to Available Storage cluster group.


PS C:\> Get-ClusterAvailableDisk | Where-Object –FilterScript { $_.ScsiAddress -Eq 50331651 } | Add-ClusterDisk

Example 3: Cluster a physical disk

This example clusters a physical disk. This cmdlet adds a physical disk to the Available Storage for the cluster.


PS C:\> Get-Disk –Number 11 | Add-ClusterDisk
