Set orchestration settings

Rank
Order in which a group of machines will be launched. For example, machines with rank 2 will be launched only after all machines with rank 1 are started, and those in turn only after all machines with a rank 0 are started.

Boot-condition
The condition in which the machine is considered to be running. Delay in time is supported, after its expiration the machine is considered to be running. The condition extends to the whole rank. If there are several machines with a time delay, the rank is considered fulfilled after waiting for the longest time.
