Adding a Node to a Cluster in Nomad

When you manage a Nomad cluster, there will be occasions where you need to add in a new Nomad client agent. You have been provided three Servers with Nomad installed. Two of the servers, nomad-server0 and nomad-client0, are in a cluster together. The third server, nomad-client1, is configured as a stand alone environment. In this hands-on lab, you must add nomad-client1 to the cluster as a client.
