Adding a node to an existing cluster using NAS Manager

Server and Cluster Administration Guide for Hitachi NAS Platform

Part Number

The server generates the node names using a combination of the cluster-name and the node ID. For example, the first node in the cluster could be named NASCluster-1. When a new node is added, it is important to check that the new name does not conflict with any existing node names in the cluster. For further information, see the cluster-node-rename and cluster-join man pages.

  1. Navigate to Home > Server Settings > Join Cluster Wizard to display the Join Cluster Wizard page.
  2. Select a server, check the suggested IP address for the node (you can change it, if necessary), enter a user name and password, and click next.
    Note: When adding a node to an existing cluster, the node being added must be the same model as the nodes already in the cluster.
  3. Allow the system to reboot.
    The selected server will automatically reboot and join the cluster during the boot process.
