You can configure the network of your HPC cluster by following the steps in the Network Configuration Wizard.
Before you start configuring the HPC cluster network using the Network Configuration Wizard, ensure that the head node and the computers that you will add as nodes to the cluster are physically connected according to the network topology that you have chosen for your cluster. Also, ensure that you are able to identify to which network each one of the network adapters in the head node is connected. For more information, see Understanding HPC Cluster Network Topologies.
