Above errors are for aerospike version- 4.3.0.2 community edition.

This is expected, the cluster size for the Community Edition of Aerospike is limited to 8 nodes: https://www.aerospike.com/docs/guide/limitations.html. Enterprise can currently support up to 128 nodes.

See here for more details on the differences between Enterprise and Community editions of Aerospike: https://www.aerospike.com/products/product-matrix/.

Thanks @kporter for clarifying the issue.
