[SOLVED] Join Cluster


New Member
May 31, 2022
When I try to join in Cluster I get an error from the second node:
Establishing API connection with host 'xx.xx.xx.xx'
TASK ERROR: 500 Can't connect to 'xx.xx.xx.xx:8006 (Connection timed out)
How can I investigate this issue?

Thank you in advance,

See if you can ping host xx.xx.xx.xx from the node that you are trying to join.
Also try "curl -sk https://xxx.xx.xx.xx:8006"

Depending on results, it could be a firewall, mis-routing, etc.
Also - is the xx.xx.xx.xx an IP that should be used for this conversation? Ensure that your /etc/hosts /etc/network/interfaces are all consistent.
