I had the same thing happen to me. Other people
have suggested adding to the route table
route add -net 188.8.131.52 netmask 240.0.0.0 lo
Since you are disconneted from the network using
lo (loopback device) then works.
I also moved cluster-service.xml from the deploy
sub-directory which seemd to help.
Hope this helps.
Thanks a million. That does the trick!
I just removed the cluster-service.xml file rather than messing with routing tables.
