I have one cluster in 2 nodes (PVE5). Now I add 3rd node in PVE6 and make new cluster. I`ve upgrade node2 do pve6 and 1st cluster was off (because corosync3). I tried to run this https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Cluster_Manager#pvecm_separate_node_without_reinstall in node 2 and add it to new cluster but now I have 3 solo nodes. I`m not able to connec node 2 to new cluster because...
root@dell:/etc# pvecm add
ipcc_send_rec[1] failed: Connection refused
ipcc_send_rec[2] failed: Connection refused
ipcc_send_rec[3] failed: Connection refused
Unable to load access control list: Connection refused
root@pve3:/var/log# pvecm status

Google and forum diddn`t help me now som I`m little confused.
I can`t make fresh install now becuase I`m 120km far away from servers/
OK i changed hostname, restarted machine and now I have only problem with quorum.
I had to reduce quorum and create /var/lib/corosync dir.
Now it seems new cluster working properly.
Edit: I have to change sshd config (debian 10 don`t use obsolete certifications) and then updatecerts via pvecm updatecerts.
