Hey Guys,

I have a 3 node cluster. I am planning to add a new node to the existing. Since I already have a cluster, once I rack mounted and connected the cables to the nodes should I go for foundation for node setup or can I use expand cluster option?

Hello @Anandu 

It depend on AOS and hypervisor version the same or not, for guidelines and check list:

For example, if I have not imaged the new node yet, can I use the expand cluster option.

I saw in this link that there is re-image option. so should I go for foundation ?

Please share your recommendations
