Enable NAS Clusters

The first step in creating a NAS cluster is to enable the nodes that will be part of the cluster. Enabling a node makes the node a member of the NAS cluster, but it cannot actively take client connections.

To enable a NAS cluster, you will need to do the following:

  • Enable a master node for the NAS cluster.
  • Enable additional nodes for the NAS cluster.
