Have never tried this before, so thought I would give it a go.
Ran the following (which worked)
tabadmin set worker1.backgrounder.procs 2
My cluster came back online with 2 backgrounders on worker 1.(there was only one before hand)
interesting, the only difference that I can see is that I was adding 1 backgrounder to a node that had never had it before. So I am thinking that if you go the normal dialog way, then it has a step in there to add the needed dll's or some other enablement.

I have just completed the same exercise.
Added 2 backgrounders to a worker which never had backgrounders installed on it before.
And, if I look on the GUI Status screen, it shows the backgrounders as being down.
However, if I use the TABADMIN STATUS -V command it shows them as being running....
thx for checking! I believe that the "tabadmin status" verifies that the port is open. But the "X" means that something is still wrong like missing dll or icon or whatever.
