If I'm not mistaken, you can put this into the config file. look into
For my application, I created my own profile with it's own config
files. That's really great, too.

The cluster I use has an NFS filesystem. I think that it what you
want. Much easier to deal with this (+ you'll need shared user
accounts, of course)

In my config file, mentioned above, I have a small loop that generates
all the names of the machines.
ipcluster start --profile=<name> then does the rest :)
