Exchange CCR Cluster resources

I have just created a CCR cluster on Windows 2003 Server.

If I go to Cluster Administrator, I notice there are two Cluster Groups:

ExchangeCCR: Exchange IS, System Attendant, First Storage Group, IP Address etc

Cluster Group: Cluster IP Address, Cluster Name, Majority Node Set

Could someone explain the difference between the two? Also, when I set the Cluster up, I had to enter an IP address and name for the Cluster, which was different to the CMS/address name. Should this have been the case? If so. what does it represent?

Finally, does anyone know a way to find out which physical node a CCR server is on by viewing the Exchange Console? Say for instance I had multiple CCR clusters set up globally, and I wanted to check which node the one in Japan was on, how could I see that? So far, the only way seems to be log onto the CMS and open the Cluster Administrator
