I installed a new node we’re adding to the SolusVM cluster, however after finishing the SolusVM install script and we went to the admin to add the server, I got the following error:

Volume Group not found

After looking around a number of people mentioned this must be something with an incorrect ID Key for the node.

I did some more debugging and determined it wasn’t the ID Key that was wrong it was the mater IP that was allowed to connect.  I then edited this file:

vi /usr/local/solusvm/data/allow.dat

And replaced it with the correct SolusVM Master IP and then reattempted to add the node again.

Now it worked, got the node added and was able to then restore VPS servers.
