Questions and Answers
 1) On Node2, should one install BRM Portalbase, optional components and Patchset 5 or is it enough to copy all files from Node1.?
 2) On Node2, after BRM portalbase installation, if we run pin_setup script with INIT_DB=NO and DROP_TABLES=NO,  will it just configure the files and nothing will be created or updated in BRM DB ( that is already initialized and configured during installation on hostname1 on Node1) ?
 3) After BRM portalbase installation as per point 2 above, if one installs optional components and then subsequently run the respective pin_setup script with parameters INIT_DB=NO and DROP_TABLES=NO,  will it again create or update BRM DB (already initialized and configured during installation on hostname1 on Node1) ?
 4) What are the configurations to be done on hostname1 and hostname2 with respect to load balancer.?
 5) During patchset 5 installation on Node1, one has first executed 7.5PS5_16933886_Portal_Base_AIX_opt and then followed by 7.5PS5_PortalBase_Upgrade_74_75_AIX_32_opt. For Node2, is it required to run these two scripts again or just executing 7.5PS5_16933886_Portal_Base_AIX_opt is sufficient as DB upgrade is already done during installation on Node1.?
