This is not necessarily the case.  It depends on the nature of the 
cluster and how you deploy software across it.  Something like this is 
unnecessary for a 3-node Veritas or Red Hat cluster.  It may or may not 
be useful in a Condor pool.  It likely is mandatory for a large Beowulf.

I've worked with two of these types of clusters, so feel free to pick my 
brane as you like.
