Question

Expected behavior when nodes are powered down

I set up a cluster with three nodes. They all got added to the LB and everything appeared fine. Then to simulate a failure, I powered down the first node droplet, expecting the LB to just stop sending traffic to it. However, to my surprise all nodes are showing down now, even though the individual droplets appear to be up. I even brought back the first node droplet and the LB is still showing all down. What did I do wrong/ what should I expect to have happened? Or is this a bug?

Hi, I’m not sure if DO has support for out of the box node auto-provisioning here. From a quick read, it doesn’t appear to be enabled by default. Thus, I believe that this is expected by default if you didn’t set this up during your provisioning. I recommend taking a look at their online documentation here to get set up if you haven’t done it:

Well, I wish that this information helps you and please do have a great day.
