You shouldn't use me as an example, then: that was my first HPC
cluster, but I had set several groups of systems before which had
related configs, and worked on clusters up to ~ 130 systems in size
while working in industry.

It all depends on what your experience is. If you haven't set up
any kind of cluster before, you're asking for trouble.
