Note: The computer names you see at the top level of the Name columns may appear
in one of three formats, depending on your configuration: the computer name (for
example, Lemur node), the Apple networking name (for example, Lemur-node.local), or
the network address for the computer (for example, 02030b-dhcp45.company.com).
When you have finished adding service nodes, click Apply.
Your cluster is now ready to process batches.
Note: Although Apple Qadministrator currently allows you to create a cluster with
unmanaged services, valid clusters require at least one managed service for the cluster
to be viewable in Apple Qmaster, Compressor, and Share Monitor.
