Hello all i currently have 12or so xen app servers across four pysical boxes, we are constantly maxing them out so i decided to add a new identical physical box and create three more virtual xen app machines on them and add to the existing farm. i am using the clone method of switching off an existing server and exporting, it takes a while so while i 'm waiting i thought i 'd ask once the three new servers are up and running how do i add them to the farm, i have looked at the chfarm command but it looks a little scary and i don't want to break anything does any one have a quick guide or advice on adding servers to existing farms. thanks in advance
