[PVE-User] Unable to join cluster

I have two new Proxmox boxes in a virgin cluster.  No VM’s, etc.  The only thing setup on them is networking.

I created a cluster on the first one successfully.

However, I try to join the second to the cluster, I get the following error:

Starting worker failed: unable to parse worker upid 'UPID:pve02:00001876:00026B6B:5B5B6751:clusterjoin:2001:470:e2fc:10::160:root at pam:' (500)

The nodes are all IPv4 and IPv6 enabled.  The cluster IP as show in the config is IPv6.  Is this the issue?

If I put the v6 address in brackets, same error.

If I substitute the IPv4 address, I get the following error

Etablishing API connection with host ''
TASK ERROR: 401 401 authentication failure

Thoughts?  They haven’t been up more than 1 hr when this occurs.

Thanks in advance
