Is it possible to create a 2 node cluster on the community edition? I have just bought two servers and seem to be going round and round in circles unable to create a 2 node cluster. I can do two single node ones fine!


From the first node it appears to start creating the cluster but then I get:

2021-02-23 23:35:55,377Z INFO cluster:1338 Creating cluster with SVMs:,
2021-02-23 23:35:55,440Z INFO cluster:1349 Will seed prism with password hash $6$V1y0m20Gw6lZ$0i9H8DKoQQv6JYKaGRhgvk79mPRkgtqzmtek91BOu4SOg4SToyrjHhhCh9nsDQcqYBHYzy9oY2HKKD78vTx9F.

    version, status, reason = self._read_status()
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/", line 417, in _read_status
    raise BadStatusLine(line)
BadStatusLine: ''



Looking in genesis.out on the 2nd node I get:


2021-02-23 23:36:09,818Z INFO Starting zookeeper

Any ideas?

OK so I knocked up a desktop PC as a third node and it creates now so I guess you cannot do a 2 node cluster on CE!
