Possibility of adding nodes to the tree view but without adding them to the cluster

May 21, 2020
My weekly backup is still a manual process where I would turn on my backup server machine via Wake On LAN

Until now, I always added my backup node to the cluster so I can power it on via right click in the nodes list in the web UI.

But this leads to more and more problems, for example when one additional node goes offline, the cluster activity stops because there is no quorum anymore when the backup server is turned of (which it is like 99,9% of the time to save energy)

What I would like is to still have the node in the tree view with the Wake On LAN address configured but not added to the cluster so I can still power on the node easily.
