If you have node 1 with token 0 and a total token range to 10 then…

* add node 2 with token 3 and it will only take ownership of the range 0 to 3. Node 1 will
own 3 to 0
* add node 3 with token 6 and it will take ownership of the range 3 to 6.  Node 1 will now
own 6 to 0

Unless you have an urgent need I would one node at a time and let the bootstrap finish.

Cheers
