Add-ClusterFileServerRole

Brian Lich|Last Updated: 3/28/2017

SYNOPSIS

Creates a clustered file server resource group.

SYNTAX

Add-ClusterFileServerRole -Storage <StringCollection> [-StaticAddress <StringCollection>]
 [-IgnoreNetwork <StringCollection>] [[-Name] <String>] [-Wait <Int32>] [-InputObject <PSObject>]
 [-Cluster <String>] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Add-ClusterFileServerRole cmdlet creates a clustered file server resource group that includes one or more disks, on which shared folders can be created for users.

When adding a clustered file server, specify a name for the file server, any IP address information that is not automatically supplied by your DHCP settings, and the storage volume or volumes that the clustered file server should use.

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

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Create a clustered file server

PS C:\> Add-ClusterFileServerRole -Storage "Cluster Disk 8"
Name                       OwnerNode                           State 
----                       ---------                           ----- 
cluster1FS                 node1                              Online

This example creates a clustered file server using Cluster Disk 8, and assigns a default name.

Example 2: Create and name a clustered file server

PS C:\> Add-ClusterFileServerRole -Storage "Cluster Disk 6" -Name cluster1FS12
Name                       OwnerNode                           State 
----                       ---------                           ----- 
cluster1FS12               node1                              Online

This example creates a clustered file server using Cluster Disk 6, and assigns the name cluster1FS12.

Example 3: Create a clustered file server with no waiting for resources

PS C:\> Add-ClusterFileServerRole -Storage "Cluster Disk 8" -Wait 0
Name                       OwnerNode                           State 
----                       ---------                           ----- 
cluster1FS                 node1                             Pending

This example creates a clustered file server using Cluster Disk 8, and assigns a default name. The cmdlet completes without waiting for all resources to come online.

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

-IgnoreNetwork

Specifies one or more networks to ignore when running the cmdlet. Networks with DHCP enabled are always included, but other networks need a static address to be specified using the StaticAddress parameter or should be explicitly ignored with this IgnoreNetwork parameter.

Type: StringCollection
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

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

-InputObject

Specifies the cluster on which to create the highly available file server.

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 highly available file server to create.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

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

-StaticAddress

Specifies one or more static addresses to use when running the cmdlet. Networks with DHCP enabled are always included, but other networks need a static address to be specified using the StaticAddress parameter or should be explicitly ignored with this IgnoreNetwork parameter.

Type: StringCollection
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

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

-Storage

Specifies the cluster disk resource to be added to the created highly available file server.

Type: StringCollection
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: True
Position: Named
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

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.
