Generate a base node XML file by using HPC Cluster Manager to export a node XML file that contains information about a subset of the computers that you will be adding as compute nodes to your HPC cluster.

Step 2: Edit the Base Node XML File

Edit the base node XML file so that it includes all of the compute nodes that you want to add to your cluster, as well as all of the necessary information for each compute node.
