*—To the other cluster nodes.
****—However, using the LiteSpeed UI Console tools is the simplest way to generate and deploy the .xml parameter files.
**—Install LiteSpeed to the active node first. That should install LiteSpeed to all nodes. If there are problems with the automatic installation to remote nodes, then install to the remaining nodes for the local cluster installations.
