Just like the first one. Only one cluster base key is published so they'll have the same cluster serial, but that shouldn't impact any functonality.
When you build node 1 pick create, and use a different cluster name. When you build node 2, pick join, and make sure you type in the name of the 2nd cluster.

No, I meant to add more nodes to the cluster.
The setup guide states that "No more than 2 cluster nodes can be booted simultaneously", but I wanted to simulate a 4-node cluster & wondered whether this was possible - perhaps with a workaround of some sort??

when I set up 2nd cluster what subnet do I have to use? Should it be the same one as first one, or different one?
I used the same subnet for 2nd cluster, then cluster2 mgmt IP's ARE NOT PINGABLE from CMD prompt, though it is pingable from inside cluster2. Node mgmt ip is pingable.
If I have to use a different one, then PLS TELL ME HOW TO DETERMINE WHAT THE SUBNET IS? I determine the subnet for the 1st cluster by using ipconfig/all then under vmware net8
DoI need to change system id to be different than any one of nodes in cluster1? I feel some thing extra has to be donein creating cluster2, otherwise, cluster mgmt ip is not reachable.
Appreciate your adivce.

You should be able to run 2 clusters on the same subnet, assuming you use different IPs for node/cluster mgmt, and a differeent cluster name. During cluster join, be careful to join the correct cluster.
If you want to put the 2nd on a different subnet, its going to be challenging in player. If the VMNET exists, your host pc will have an IP on that VM net and you can get the network/subnet/gateway addersses from that interface on the host pc.

I have done everything you just said.
I did not and do not want to use different subnet, I want to use the same subnet (of cause different ip number) as cluster1.
I just don't know what went wrong.
