MDCAdminTool is a working sample of how to programmatically manage one or more on-premises AppFabric cache clusters in a single user interface. The tool does not need to be run on a cache node. In fact, part of the purpose of the tool is to allow administrators to manage their cache clusters outside of any cache node, which is currently not possible with PowerShell for certain commands such as Add-CacheHost, Remove-CacheHost, and Unregister-CacheHost. Running these commands requires three things:
I. Elevated trust (which can be done by running as administrator)
II. PowerShell remoting availability
III. An authenticated user
The third requirement of having an authenticated user is the most difficult, because identity is lost after the PowerShell command is sent to a different machine in the network.
