How to configure DS/FIM to point to IPS clustered server after installation?

We need some assistance in terms of configuration of our clustered environment for DS/FIM and IPS servers in Windows environment.

We have following network configuration for IPS and DS/FIM clustered servers respectively:

IPS-Cluster Server Name:

                Individual IPS Servers (Nodes) within cluster: ipsvirtualserver1, ipsvirtualpserver2

DS/FIM Cluster Server Name:

    Individual DS/FIM Servers (Nodes) within cluster: dsfimserver1, dsfimserver2, dsfimserver3, dsfimserver4

When installing DS 4.2/FIM 10.0 software on above DS/FIM individual servers, we used the IPS server name ipsvirtualserver1 and not the IPS cluster name when providing CMS server information during installation steps. We would like to change the configuration in DS and FIM to point to the IPS Cluster name ( and not the individual server (ipsvirtualserver1).

Hence, there are two questions we need answers for:

1.   1.     Where to make the change required so that the individual servers in DS/FIM cluster are pointing correctly to IPS cluster server

2.   2.     What is the naming convention when connecting to IPS Clustered server for authentication (e.g. from DS Designer). Can we directly use the cluster name or use combination of two servers together (ipsvirtualserver1, ipsvirtualserver2).

Thank you in advance for providing assistance in this matter.
