    Problem setting up clustered JBossCache

    Matthew Schmidt Newbie

      Hi everyone. We recently upgraded to JBossCache 3.0.1 and are having some troubles getting the clustered cache working. We're running on multi-homed IP systems with our clustered frontends feeding off the same directory for the web application. Here is the error we're getting:

      We get this with both the default udp.xml file being used for the JGroups config and the expanded cut and pasted version. In standard local mode, everything seems to work fine. On our dev machines, the udp.xml seems to work fine and picks up the single IP. We really would like the cluster to be listening on the 2nd NIC in the machine only since its on a private network. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks,
      Matt
