NBU media server cannot be

NBU media server cannot be clustered.

You can install independent media server software on each node, then add app_cluster in NBU for virtual hostname associated with existing application cluster group, then add STU using the virtual hostname.
The virtual hostname used for app_cluster and STU name will be the same as the hostname used in Clients tab of policy.

More info and detailed instructions in NBU HA guide.
