Simple "cluster" setup

I am reviewing the requirements to setup a centralized management environment and was looking for some guidance on two things so far....

1. If I have a standalone c360 running right now processing mail and I create a new cluster, I realize it will use the standalone settings as the cluster level

settings as it is the first box in the cluster, but will it require me to restart the appliance before I can join a second box to the cluster?

2. At this point if I only have two devices in a single datacenter, is it mandatory or a best practice for me to both the cluster level and the group level?

Thanks,

Chris

FYI.... The first part to my question was answered by support. They stated that creating a new cluster does NOT require a restart.

Chris,

For the first question, You do not need to restart any of the appliances.

For the second one, with only two appliances in the setup, I would recommend using cluster level settings only. The group will be helpful if you require to have multiple sets of appliances with different configuration for each set.

Hope this will be helpful.
