Add node to existing cluster
To add a data node to an existing cluster, follow the steps below.
- Install and start a new data node. Complete steps 1–3 of the data node installation instructions.
- To join the new node to the cluster, do one of the following:
From a meta node, run:
influxd-ctl add-data <new data node address>:<port>
From a remote server, run:
influxd-ctl -bind <existing_meta_node:8091> add-data <new data node address>:<port> ```
- (Optional) Rebalance the cluster.
