Healthy load balancer with healthy droplets returning 503
I’ve setup a load balancer and attached two droplets that are all in the same region. The health checks are all green and I’m able to reach the two droplets individually by accessing their public IP on port 8080 (My NodeJS app is listening on port 8080). I’m wondering what else I could be missing. The load balancer is configured to forward HTTP on port 80 to HTTP on port 8080 for the droplets. It’s seem odd that I can reach the droplets directly but the load balancer cant. The error I’m getting is: “503 Service Unavailable: No server is available to hand this request”
