The message explained itself - not able to sync with NTP.

The best practice is NOT to use NTP/DNS/SMTP during install. You'll have the chance to configure those after install.

sorry, didn't notice that you were installing 2nd node.

You'll have to wait until the 1st node synchronize up with NTP before installing 2nd node. If 1st node didn't sync to NTP, 2nd node won't sync to 1st node.


1) Find out why 1st node didn't sync up to NTP.


2) Delete NTP server from 1st node.

Hi Kevin,

The second reference in the attached screen capture is asking about whether or not the second node was added to the Pub/1st node (server list) before starting to build.

Just checking,
