In my test setup, this is somewhat how I've been using my cluster in the past 
year or so. I try to maintain everything from just one node and it sort of 
becomes my management node.

I've set up basic scripts to control the other nodes when I want to do 
something system wide. Pretty basic stuff using scp and ssh remote commands so 
that I don't have to log into every node to do something repetitive.

The problem is that since the cluster interacts with traditional 
storage/networking, it's sometimes too easy to forget that various things are 
shared.
