When giving the data nodes the IDs 1,2,4,5 (leaving out 3) the error message

    Hostname required on nodeid 3 since it will act as server.

is thrown and the management daemon refuses to start.

How to repeat:
start ndb_mgmd with the attached config file

workaround for this is to give _all_ nodes an id, also the mysqld.

Please make sure to give the mysqld's a higher numner than any of the ndbd's and ndb_mgmd's

Will not change in 4.1,

but in 5.0 will add "smarter" automatic node allocation.

Logic being always do automatic node allocation starting from latest used id in the config file

Will also add so that api/mysqld node are always "clients"
