do you have correct time configured on both servers?
If not, configure correct time then try generate new SSC and try again.
That is what I was becoming to believe.
To get around the problem, I turned off the Trust Communications on both systems and this then worked.
I may re-visit the Trust at some later date.
I take your point about self-signed certificates as this is probably not trusted by the systems by its very nature.
Many thanks for your help
that's right...when you turn off the trust, the cert's will not come in picture and you can resgister the nodes without having a secure tunnel. Let me know if you need more help on this.

I have geotrust certs on the primary node and on the new secondary node I am trying to add. do you know why would I still get this error?
even with Trust OFF, you have secured comunication between nodes (perhaps using self-signed cert). However your node will trust any certificate for communication (security risk).
How do I turn off the trust communications? I've run into the same issue while trying to register a secondary.
Step 1 Choose System Administration > Configuration > Global System Options > Trust Communication Settings.
Step 2 Un-Check the Enable Nodes Trust Communication check box.
Step 3 Click Submit.
