Adding Service Nodes to a Cluster
Do the following on each computer that you would like to make an unmanaged service
node on your cluster.
To add a service node to a cluster
In Compressor, choose Apple Qmaster > Share This Computer.
The Apple Qmaster Sharing pane appears.
Select “Share this computer” and “as Services only.”
All other settings in this window should be correct by default:
• Rendering and Compressor should both be selected.
• “Require these services to only be used in managed clusters” should not be selected.
• All other settings are disabled.
For more information about these settings, see
About Basic Settings in the Apple Qmaster
This creates a service node that will automatically process jobs submitted to the
