Pega nodes have trouble joining DNode cluster on restart



There are 21 Pega nodes in the environment. Few nodes do not start when all 21 nodes are started at once. They must be restarted separately. If all the nodes are started one after the other, they join the cluster successfully, but there is a significant amount of downtime to do this.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Stop all 21 nodes.
  2. Start all of them at once.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules.
