[PVE-User] Cluster Creation on pve-manager/2.2/3089a616 (2.6.32-16-pve #1) with 2 Nodes

I tried to install cluster on a couple of 1H servers, set up on the same subnet behind pfSense firewall with bridget LAN-ports.

Unfortunately, I did not succeed, as the following errors occured. Anyone knows why?

Further questions:

a) Is it possible to create a two-node-cluster from two running nodes at all?

b) Is it advisable, to do so with only two hardware nodes? Is it more stable to run 2 separate nodes, each with its own GUI (without live migration)?

Thanks for your help!
