Hi Sam,

After you changed that file on the repo, I was able to create a new cluster. However, there is a difference between the number of resources on your video, "74" to my current version, "63".

I noticed that all my Registered targets were in an unhealthy stage. I did some research and decided to start the vault cluster to see if it would fix the issue.

ubuntu@ip-10-0-150-146:~$ vault status

Now I have 1 in healthy status and 2 in unhealthy status with this error:

Health checks failed with these codes: [429]

Have you faced this problem before?

@rmarcandier13 If you're using GitHub codespaces, make sure the port tab is using https not http

Hi @rmarcandier13, yes it's intentional. Status code 429 is returned for a standby node. We want the load balancer to only forward traffic to the active node. This is important in failover scenarios. If the LB is forwarding traffic to a standby node and that node goes down it will take some time before the LB moves traffic to the active node. So it's best to make sure that the LB is always forwarding only to the active node.
