821 ESX sim 2nd node join cluster fails with network error


Hi all, I am getting errors trying to join the 2nd node. I did the usual serial number changes, etc .. and have dedicated cluster interconnect networks defined.

When I start the process, it shows the cluster that I am trying to join. It then begins network setup and fails. The error message flashes by too fast to see, but I can tell it is a network error.

I can ping both interconnect addresses from the primary node, so I know connection is good.


This only seems to be happening with the 8.2.1 sim. Previous versions seem to work. Has anyone seen this?

Any work-arounds?
