I am trying to configure 2 instances of CQ 5.5 author clustering through GUI using Shared Nothing clustering as mentioned on online documentation link below.
No firewall rules on both master and slave.
When I try to join the slave, I am getting "Error: java.io.IOException: Slave was unable to connect to <master IP Address>: Operation timed out after 1000 ms."
The error log in master shows "[Master (2907a049-202f-4c73-a7da-5d5eb81a21b9) - Socket connector] com.day.crx.core.cluster.ClusterMaster I/O error while processing connect. java.net.SocketTimeoutException: Read timed out"
I read from the above link of 'socketTimeout' param and has it configured in master's repository.xml under Cluster element. Entry I made is: <param name="socketTimeout" value="60000" />
I tried configuring that param on both slave and master but still getting this error.
I could telnet both ways using both instances' respective ports as well as default "8088" clustering ports.
I was wondering if anybody from the board can give me directions on how to resolve this issue.
Appreciate any response....Thanks.
Error indicates network issue. How long does it take when you telnet?
My next suggesion does not make sence but can you please try with manual slave cloning to join cluster.
