Adding Client Node
Using NCache Manager
Each clustered cache tree in Cache Explorer contains a node known as Client Nodes. Any number of client nodes can be added in a clustered cache.
- Right click on Client Nodes in Cache Explorer for a cache and then click on the Add Node option.
- Provide the client machine name/IP by expending Network Neighbourhood or you can manually enter client node name/IP in text box.
If you have more than one IP address on a client machine, then enter the IP address on which NCache service is running.
- Click on the Finish button, newly added client node appears under Client Nodes in Cache Explorer tree view.
You might get prompted with a dialog box upon these changes, asking weather to reload or overwrite the cache config file. For more detail maintaining data integrity, refer to this chapter.
Using Windows PowerShell
Add-ClientNode cmdlet enables the user to add one or more client nodes to existing clustered cache(s).
This command adds a Client node 18.104.22.168 to a cache named demoClusteredCache already existing on server node 22.214.171.124.
Add-Clientnode demoClusteredCache -Server 126.96.36.199 -ClientNode 188.8.131.52
The following command adds a Client node 184.108.40.206 to a cache named demoClusteredCache which already exists on server node 220.127.116.11 with port number 8251 which is not the default port number.
Add-ClientNode -CacheName demoClusteredCache -Server 18.104.22.168 -ClientNode 22.214.171.124 -Port 8251
