Add cluster peer trying to reach wrong endpoint



I am using a NFR license.
I am mounting a cluster environment in ubuntu, where my cluster master is on splunkd-port 8090
I have another ubuntu in a virtualbox running there on port 8089.

When I try to add the vbox peer to the cluster, I get this error:
Error=http client error=Connection refused, while trying to reach

I don't understand why splunk is trying to reach for if splunkd-port for the cluster master is 8090. Anyone?

Yes I just confirmed I have both master_uri correct in the server.conf of both peers.

One note, it doesn't matter what peer I add first. The first one always works like a charm, the second one to be added makes the master show the message I noted in the question.

Can you check the master_url entry in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/server.conf file on your peer node ? You need to provide correct ip and port as per your master node configuration:

master_uri = https://a.b.c.d:8089
mode = slave
