We have the same setup one slow and fast network. There are two possible 
  1- Use the fast network names as node names, then the frontend node 
must also be connected to the fast network.
  1- If the frontend is on a different network or you want to use the 
slow network for communications. Use the slow network names and if there 
is an mpi you can translate the hostname to the fast hostnames in a 
prologue scriptt or use mpiexec that also can do some hostname remapping.
