Expand the cluster by discovering and adding new nodes

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

Description

The cluster add-node command discovers and adds new nodes to the cluster. When the -node-count parameter is specified, the command attempts to add that many nodes to the cluster. The -node-ip parameter can be specified to directly add a node. The -cluster-ips parameter can be specified to directly add one or more nodes in parallel. Only one of the -node-count , -node-ip and -cluster-ips parameters can be provided. The system node show-discovered command displays all the nodes discovered on the local network.

Note The node-count parameter is deprecated and may be removed in a future release of Data ONTAP. Use the -cluster-ips parameter instead.

Parameters

{ -cluster-ips <IP Address>,…​ - List of Cluster Interface IP Addresses of the Nodes Being Added

This parameter contains a comma separated list of cluster interface IP addresses of the nodes in the cluster you are creating. All the nodes specified in the list will be added to the cluster.

| -retry <true> - Retry a failed cluster add-node operation

Use this parameter to retry the most recently failed cluster add-node command with the originally specified parameters. Retry is not supported if the cluster add-node command was originally run with either the -node-count or -node-ip parameters.

| -node-count <integer> - (DEPRECATED)-Number of Nodes Being Added

Number of nodes to be added to the cluster. If fewer nodes are discovered, all the discovered nodes are added to the cluster and the command will fail since there are fewer nodes than specified. If more nodes are found than the number specified, the command will fail because there is no way to determine which nodes you intend to add to the cluster.
