cluster join

Join an existing cluster using the specified member's IP address or by cluster name

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the admin privilege level.

Description

The cluster join command adds a node to an existing cluster. Use the cluster create command to create a cluster if one does not already exist.

Note that a cluster network interface must be configured for the cluster before other nodes can join the cluster.

Parameters

{ -clusteripaddr <IP Address> - IP Address of a Cluster Interface from a Node in the Cluster
Use this parameter to specify the IP address of a cluster interface. This must be the IP address of a cluster interface of a node that is already in the cluster. This parameter is mutually exclusive with the -cluster-name parameter.
| -cluster-name <text>} - Cluster Name of the Cluster to Join
Use this parameter to specify the name of an existing cluster to join. This parameter is mutually exclusive with the -clusteripaddr parameter.

Examples

The following example joins the local node to a cluster. The IP address 192.0.2.66 is the address of a cluster interface of a node that already belongs to the cluster.
node::> cluster join -clusteripaddr 192.0.2.66
This next example joins the local node to a cluster named "cluster1". "cluster1" is a cluster that already exists.
node::> cluster join -cluster-name cluster1
