Add a node while a cluster is running?


Hi Dear,

I was looking for a solution to add a node to a running cluster, but unfortunately I didn’t find any documentation / or I have overlooked that. Could you please advice me to a documentation or a quick overview how to do so?

Currently I am running 2 Nodes as a cluster, and would like to add one more node.

Thanks in advance,


New node not getting added in running cluster

The process is simple but slightly different depending on whether you use multicast or mesh heartbeats.

For multicast you just need to ensure that the new nodes is configured with the same multicast address and port.

For mesh I recommend following this page for reference.

Once the node is configured properly, simply start the node as you would normally.


got it, thank you so much.
