Create a Linux node pool

New-AksHciNodePool -clusterName mycluster -name linuxnodepool -osType linux

Create a Windows node pool

New-AksHciNodePool -clusterName mycluster -name windowsnodepool -osType windows

Create a node pool with custom VM size

New-AksHciNodePool -clusterName mycluster -name nodepool1 -vmSize Standard_A2_v2

Create a node pool with taints

New-AksHciNodePool -clusterName mycluster -name nodepool1 -taints sku=gpu:NoSchedule

Create a node pool with max pod count

New-AksHciNodePool -clusterName mycluster -name nodepool1 -maxPodCount 100

Disable the horizontal autoscaler on a new node pool

This parameter will be ignored if the horizontal autoscaler is not enabled on the cluster.
