if you deploy your packed application into the deploy/farm directory it will be deployed on all clustermembers.
you have to deploy into an running aplication server -> hotdeploy
so as soon as the second members will be av. the appl. will be deployed also to him.
hope, this helps,
mo on tht... i have managed to get the two nodes to get connected bt my problem is tht when one fails the appl. is not automatically run on the other one. i need to start up the appl. server again for it to happen. any thoughts or xplanation on this?
