I think one of the good things with salt (or the likes) is that it puts 
all of the configuration in one well defined place. I guess what you are 
saying implies that in your case the cluster is so to say defined by a 
"kickstart file" or something like that. For this to be consistent I 
also guess that if your definition of the cluster is changed you have to 
update the "kickstart file" and reinstall everything (which is no big 
deal, but using salt it becomes an even lesser deal...).
