Load an OS on these hosts if you not done so already. For more information, go to the Sun N1 System Manager 1.3 Operating System Provisioning Guide
Set up /etc/hosts or DNS on each of the hosts so that they know the location of the master host.

nfsservername: The name of the master host on the external grid.
nfsmountpoint: The directory on the NFS server that contains the N1GE common directory.
