Adds a peer replica to an existing Active-Active database in order to host the database on another cluster. This creates an additional active instance of the database on the specified cluster.

crdb-cli crdb add-instance --crdb-guid <guid>
         --instance fqdn=<cluster_fqdn>,username=<username>,password=<password>[,url=<url>,replication_endpoint=<endpoint>]
         [ --compression <0-6> ]
         [ --no-wait ]


Parameter Value Description
crdb-guid string The GUID of the database (required)
instance strings The connection information for the new participating cluster (required)
compression 0-6 The level of data compression: 0=Compression disabled

6=High compression and resource load (Default: 3)
no-wait Does not wait for the task to complete


Returns the task ID of the task that is adding the new instance.

If --no-wait is specified, the command exits. Otherwise, it will wait for the instance to be added and return finished.
