Using wsadmin to install/update apps in WAS ND environment

We've been using WAS 5.0.2 ND for many moons. When updating apps, we've always used the browser-based admin console. But going forward, we'd like to automate things a bit and use wsadmin to update apps. On a base version of WAS 5.0.2, I've no problem running a script to update and app. An example such as this works fine on a base WAS:

install /QIBM/UserData/WebAS5/ND/default/installableApps/EAR_Files/xxxxdev.ear
{ -server xxxxdev xxxxweb -appname xxxxdev}

$AdminConfig save

When I try running this script on an ND version of WAS, I'm not having much luck. I have a feeling I'm leaving out an important option. So the question is: Are there special considerations for installing/updating apps in WAS ND with wsadmin?

*** Later developments ***

Made the installation work by adding -cell and -node information:

install /QIBM/UserData/WebAS5/ND/default/installableApps/EAR_Files/xxxxdev.ear
{ -cell xxxxNetwork -node xxxx -server xxxxdev xxxxweb -appname xxxxdev}

$AdminConfig save

BUT I had to do a synchronize request via the admin console. Would like to do a syncNode command, but the documentation states that the node agent must be stopped first. Is there a less drastic way to synchronize via wsadmin?
