ring_creation_size is the key setting. Once you set it for a cluster it is a lock. Check the deets on the wiki. 

cookie : erlang clusters share a cookie that they all need to have in the config. Make it sUp3rSp3c!aL!.

name : each host needs its own unique name. Something like riak at private-ip-addr will work. 

That's about all you need to keep in mind.

Yes, the question is, what would you need to change in that initial setup to 
have something that would migrate, still running to some larger number of nodes 
on other machines?  A larger number of partitions?
