i am trying to setup a qdevice in my 2 Node Cluster. I am running a Debian10 VM on a different Server outside the cluster.

When i am trying to connect the qdevice I get the following Error Message.

:pvecm qdevice setup <ip qdevice >

corosync-qnetd and corosync-qdevice are Installed on the Server.

Thank you for reading this.
Did you install corosync-qnetd and corosync-qdevice on the external Debian server?

corosync-qdevice needs to be installed on the Proxmox VE nodes.
