The instructions are absolutely clear. Run to completion on the first node, and then (if you wish) in parallel subsequently. If you run on two nodes concurrently to begin with, you will have to de-configure both nodes and run again. I have seen this situation (in the classroom) a few times.

so if i have a 8 node cluster lets say, i can run root.sh on 2,3,4,5,6,7 concurrently, BUT what is the meaning of FIRST and LAST, the line in doc is confusing me
so does it mean if i have a 8 node cluster lets say, i can run root.sh on 2,3,4,5,6,7 concurrently, BUT for FIRST i should wait for root.sh and when it is finished then go to LAST does it mean this ? the line in doc is confusing me
On an 8 node cluster you could do:
Run root.sh on node 1 wait for it to finish
Run root.sh on nodes 2, 3, 4 ,5 ,6, 7 wait for all 5 to finish
Run root.sh on node 8
Given that on most cases root.sh only takes a second or two to run it is probably just as easy to just rn it serially on all the nodes.
