Sample input file that shows configuration information needed for adding nodes to the cluster. The easiest way to work with this file is to import it into Excel as a comma-delimited file, add the necessary values, including compute node MAC addresses, and then export the data as a comma-separated value file. Every item must have an entry or the input file will not work properly. If you do not have a value for a field, use a hyphen ‘-‘ for the field instead.

Note that, for the sake of readability, we have broken some of these lines into multiple lines. The line beginning with ServerName should be combined with the next two lines. The line beginning with Node1 should be combined with the next line; the same is true of the line beginning with Node2. The actual .CSV file should consist of 6 lines:

FullName,YourName ...
Organisation Name,YourCompany ...
ProductKey,xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx ...
Server Name,Srv Description ...
Node01,Rack 1, Slot 1 ...
Node02,Rack 1, Slot 2 ...
