can't add new node to a cluster.

When I run the nwdeploy or use imanager I cant add a new node.

I am useing NW65 sp5 with enough licenses added for this node.

When I run the tools I get the same error

The connection to the server was dropped or timed out.

Has anyone seen this before?

Re: can't add new node to a cluster.

Make sure you have a mapped drive to each node, plus the new node,
before starting Deployment Manager.

Hi Andrew

I did have those mapped but it is a new day and I will try again.

Thanks

Re: can't add new node to a cluster.

Andrew,

I checked again and the cluster nodes were all mapped to the
workstation I was working from.

I also tried it from a different workstation with the same result. I
also tried using a different download of the OS cd

Any other ideas?

I was thinking that perhaps a cluster down might be in order?

Re: can't add new node to a cluster.


just a thought...

make sure your connections to the servers are via IP.

if the cluster is up and running fine, a cluster down would seem to be
overkill (while it would probably work).

Re: can't add new node to a cluster.

I appear to be having the exact same problem. Any solutions would be
wonderful. I have mapped drives to all servers. Connections via IP. Two
servers in the Cluster and want to add a third one. I get "The connection to
the server was dropped or timed out." All servers are at the same server and
patch level.

Well the nodes and the workstation _should_ all be in the same subnet
.... if so SLP should not be a factor.

The nodes are all on SP5, is the CD you are running the Deployment
Manager from the 6.5 SP 5 overlay?

Well we just restarted one of the other nodes and now there si a
cluster lock error happening.

When it rains it pours

I will have to do a cluster down tonight and then bring it up.

Re: can't add new node to a cluster.

We only have ip enabled here.

I have another problem in that one of the other nodes will not join the
cluster due to a lock error
seems I will have to down the cluster anyway

Re: can't add new node to a cluster.


hmmmm.... you haven't changed anything in the network that could
affect the cluster heartbeat have you?

just guessing here...
