Peering 8.3 not valid in the IPSPACE

Hi

 

We trie to peer two 2-node clusters.

 

cluster peer create -peer-addrs IP1, IP2 -username admin -ipspace ClusterIPSpaceName

 

This gives us the error as follow.

 

command failed: ip address famaily ipv4 of the specified peer addresse is not valid in the IPSpace "ClusterIPSpace".

there are no operational local ipv4 interclusterlifs available in the default IPSpace.

 

We have separate IPSpace for intercluster lifs.

8 entries were displayed.

 

Output on 2nd Cluster is similiar with diffrent ip adresses in the same subnet.

The name of the IPSüace on both Clusters is "Cluster"

 

Do we missed something?

 

Thanks for any advice.

Re: Peering 8.3 not valid in the IPSPACE

You confuse INTRAcluster and INTERcluster. "Cluster" ipspace is reserved for INTRAcluster interconnect; there is no way to use it for INTERcluster peering. Either use default ipspace (not specifying any ipspace will automatically do it) or create your custom ipspace if you really need.
