Executed on second infoblox machine process:

 

Grid properties wizzard ->  Join Existing Grid

If you run a Traffic Capture on the Grid Master while attempting to join the Grid member, that will allow you to check after the fact and see if any traffic is actually reaching the Grid master. If no traffic is seen from the appliance that is attempting to join the Grid, you will need to verify your basic networking setup (firewall, router, etc). The Grid communications use ports 2114 and 1194.

 

You will also want to make sure that on your Grid Master and under the Grid -> Grid Manager -> Members tab, that the Grid member has been defined there with the correct member type (vNIOS for virtual appliances) and network settings. If that is not done, this can also cause the join attempt to fail lke you are seeing here.

 

Regards,

Tony

After 10 minutes if communication is not made, the connection should time out and fail.  You should see the failure error message on the appliance you are attempting to join to the Grid.  Are there any specific connection options you have enabled in the settings? --> i.e. via MGMT port; are you joining a single appliance to a single appliance, or attempting an HA configuration?

 

As Tony stated, a traffic capture will give you better insight to what is actually happening.

I am trynig to connect using single applience to single applience. After timeout  i have in terminal : 

Failed to contact MASTER; wrong IP or node was not added at master
The join parameters were:
Master VIP: 10.150.16.4
Grid Name: 10.150.16.4
Grid Shared Secret: ******

 

One more issue, i have installed one more instance on VM-Ware host  and cant enable UI.

Error: Cannot enable Web UI on virtual appliance 'IB-VMWARE' model.

 

Thanks in advance for help.

I'm also having issue joining a vNIOS instance to a grid master. I did a packet capture and I'm seeing traffic from the member but no reply from the grid master

 

member: 10.1.10.101

master: 10.1.10.100

The member and master are on the same subnet so no firewall related issue there. I can ping other from both devices.

 

I've added the member on the Grid master's grid manager page and checked all the IPs...
