Hello @Sven ,
Thank you for reaching out to the Microsoft Q&A platform. Happy to answer your question.
HPC auto grow shrink cannot auto add compute nodes to cluster, you need add the nodes to your HPC IaaS cluster first, then if you enable auto grow shrink, it can stop the nodes when no job, and start the nodes when new job is coming.
An explicit note added in the document about the workflow of autogrowshrink in HPC here hpcpack-auto-grow-shrink
Hope this helps!
