Installing multiple web/app servers


Hi all.

Hope someone can help out with this (BPC 5.1)

We have a live environment with 2 SQL boxes (clustered), plus 3 Web/App Servers which are all configured to go through a load-balancer.

I'm trying to setup a DR set of servers, and have built the clustered SQL boxes, plus 1 Web/App server.

Trouble is that I don't yet have a working load balancer on that site.

My questions are:

Do I need the load balancer setup first, then enter the LB address in the "Reporting Server", "Web Server" and "App Server" boxes during BPC install?

Would the lack of a load balancer prevent me from setting up more than one Web/App server, as the 2nd one just hangs about 3/4 of the way through the BPC installation and tells me nothing.

Finally, if the answer to the first question is "yes", will I have to uninstall/re-install BPC, or can I just change the settings in Server Options?
