Hi,

Both nodes are 8.0.3 and fully updated, trying to create cluster through cli but each time it's getting stuck Waiting for quorum...OK.

I've waited over 2 hours to see if it needs time to complete :) but it wasn't the case.

When i terminate cluster with :
Code:
systemctl stop pve-cluster
systemctl stop corosync
pmxcfs -l
rm /etc/pve/corosync.conf
rm -r /etc/corosync/*
killall pmxcfs
systemctl start pve-cluster
pvecm delnode oldnode
rm /var/lib/corosync/*
it's exiting the process (obviously) :)

--All nodes can ping eachother(both ip and fqdn)
--All nodes can ssh to eachother(both ip and fqdn)
--Nodes are not behind NAT
--both node defined in /etc/hosts
--tried to create cluster with both ip and hostname ,result was the same

corosync.conf as below;
Code:
logging {
  debug: off
  to_syslog: yes
}

nodelist {
  node {
    name: helsinki
    nodeid: 1
    quorum_votes: 1
    ring0_addr: 65.21.27.202
  }
}

quorum {
  provider: corosync_votequorum
}

totem {
  cluster_name: egeclst012
  config_version: 1
  interface {
    linknumber: 0
  }
  ip_version: ipv4-6
  link_mode: passive
  secauth: on
  version: 2
}

i've created Syslog.txt with below command;
Code:
journalctl --since "2023-08-25 05:30" --until "2023-08-26 09:00" > /tmp/Syslog.txt
and attached to post

pveversion -v output as below;

Did you try adding the nodes via the webui?
Just to mention it, if you have a cluster of two severs, each time a server goes offline, the other one will go into no quorum / protective state, bc it does not know if it is the one thats offline or the other one, there are tons of post on this topic.

You can try to overrule quorum with the command pvecm expect 1 or pvecm expect 2 on the node thats giving you the error, however this can cause problems so use with caution

Yes i've already tried to add through webui, and it's also getting stuck (i forgot what was the last message before it get stuck), node's web access is going down (i mean it's not accepting your password anymore), on the main cluster node you can see it's online but when you click to it it says
Code:
/etc/pve/nodes/merkez/pve-ssl.pem' does not exist!

when i check /etc/pve/nodes/merkez there are no .pem file

Honestly i don't think it's quorum issue because it says OK, not getting stuck on waiting quorum, but i'm a rookie after all, maybe that's the problem.

you can try to generate new certs with
pvecm updatecerts --force
i've tried this method on both hosts, but didn't help
Code:
rm /etc/pve/priv/pve-root*
pvecm updatecerts --force
systemctl restart pveproxy.service

is it ok? or should i just run the command your provided?
 
ok wait on which node did you get the
/etc/pve/nodes/merkez/pve-ssl.pem' does not exist! error,
on the node named merkez or onthe other one?

1st(main system) - helsinki
2nd system - merkez

just now tried to add merkez to helsinki as cluster and it's stuck on "Request addition of this node".

On helsinki it shows merkez as online, when i go to datacenter->cluster it says "'/etc/pve/nodes/merkez/pve-ssl.pem' does not exist! (500)" and merkez's webgui is now returning ERR_TIMED_OUT, screenshots as attached

Did you ever get this fixed I've been trying to troubleshoot this for over a week and I've reinstalled proxmox on both servers multiple times at this point
