error during cfs-locked 'file-corosync_conf' operation: no links and no fallback ip (new_node_ip) given, cannot join cluster


Dec 10, 2019
Hi Guys ,
I have deleted a node from a cluster ( server06) and trying to add the node back after cleaning all server folder (server06) on cluster /etc/pve/nodes/ .
I have clean the server06 which was separated from cluster as a stand alone server and tried to add the server on server01 ( one of the cluster nodes ) and receive this error :

error during cfs-locked 'file-corosync_conf' operation: no links and no fallback ip (new_node_ip) given, cannot join cluster

I would really appreciate your help on this one as I couldn't find anything over the forum and internet about this specific error .

Best Wishes .
Dear Proxmox staff ,
