  5. Do one of the following:

    • Double-click each node. In the UML Node Properties dialog box, click Components. Under Choose the components which are deployed by this node, select the appropriate components, and then click OK.

    • Double-click each component. In the UML Component Properties dialog box, click Nodes. Under Choose the nodes which deploy this component, select the appropriate nodes, and then click OK.

      Important: Do not group a node and the shapes it contains. If you need to move a node and the elements within it, drag a selection rectangle around the node to select all the shapes, and then drag them to the position you want.
