I just stated evaluating Aerospike (Community Edition build 3.5.4) and have setup 2 servers (as-01 + as-02) on Ubuntu 14.04 in a LXC containers.
Installation was easy, the servers are starting up fine. But they do not form a cluster. Multicast is working in our VLAN (is used already by jgroups), IPTables is not used on these VMs.
Multicast config was the default:
mode multicast address 126.96.36.199 port 9918 interface-address <ip as-01/02>
I also tried a mesh configuration for the 2 hosts like this:
as-01 config: mode mesh address <ip as-01> port 30002 mesh-seed-address-port <ip as-02> 30002 as-02 config: mode mesh address <ip as-02> port 30002 mesh-seed-address-port <ip as-01> 30002
But the nodes still do not form a cluster (at least the logs say CLUSTER SIZE = 1).
I also tried this multicast testing tool mtools to check the multicast network and it works fine.
What can be the problem? Something else to check? Are there any known issues with running AeroSpike in Linux LXC with a network setup with bonds and bridges?
Any help is appreciated
