[PVE-User] Unable to join cluster

What's the output of "pvecm status"?
Same version on both nodes?
Time synchronized?
How are you adding the second node?  Try "pvecm add XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX"
Is multicast enabled?  Does omping work and not drop packets?

(Also, can somebody fix the typo of the missing "s" in "Etablishing API connection with host XXXXX")

Subject: [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
