... and no sooner do I say that do I find this: 


"Important - Use of a power controller is strongly  recommended as part of a
production cluster environment. Configuration of a cluster without a power
controller is not supported."

a 2-node 2850 Dell setup would be great, otherwise no worries. Thanks for
