Incorrect cluster settings can cause problems - have fix

A known issue as of now is if you try to bind the cluster address to a bad address. You would do this in the Gateway Configuration page->Network and

  1. Unchecking Autodetect Bind Interface
  2. Typing a bad address under Bind Interface

The FactoryPMI service will not start. If you look in the “Monitor FPMI Gateway” utility you will see the following error:

Error connecting to cluster. failed to start protocol stack

The fix is to go into the cluster.xml file and change this line from false to true.

<entry key="cluster.bind_addr.autodetect">true</entry>

We’re currently investigating the best way to fix the problem and prevent it from occurring. It may include a cluster reset option in the “Monitor FPMI Gateway” utility.
