Hi folks,

We are facing issues in setting up three node mysql cluster for high availability.
We have set management server on one machine and the same machine has two 
nodes running locally on them. The connection seems to be working fine after following
the documentations in the following link . Everything works like a charm.

But when we attach a third node which is another machine with a different IP address. 
We get into lot of issues. The commands that we ran to start management server, 
ndb_mgm, ndbd and then mysqld can be seen below :

status of localhost can be seen below :

[root@test bin]# ./ndb_mgm -e show
Connected to Management Server at: localhost:1186
Cluster Configuration
[ndbd(NDB)] 2 node(s)
id=3 @  (mysql-5.5.29 ndb-7.2.10, Nodegroup: 0, Master)
id=4 @  (mysql-5.5.29 ndb-7.2.10, Nodegroup: 0)

[ndb_mgmd(MGM)] 1 node(s)
id=1 @  (mysql-5.5.29 ndb-7.2.10)

[mysqld(API)] 1 node(s)
id=50 @  (mysql-5.5.29 ndb-7.2.10)

Status of localhost after connecting third node can be seen below :

[root@test bin]# ./ndb_mgm -e show
Connected to Management Server at: localhost:1186
Cluster Configuration
[ndbd(NDB)] 3 node(s)
id=3 (not connected, accepting connect from
id=4 (not connected, accepting connect from
id=11 (not connected, accepting connect from

[ndb_mgmd(MGM)] 1 node(s)
id=1 @  (mysql-5.5.29 ndb-7.2.10)

[mysqld(API)] 3 node(s)
id=50 (not connected, accepting connect from any host)
id=51 (not connected, accepting connect from
id=52 (not connected, accepting connect from any host)

I am also attaching config.ini and my.cnf files of management server and data node respectively.

config_management_server.ini : management server config.ini file
my_cnf_data_node.cnf : my.cnf on third data node

Please let us know where are we going wrong.

Thank you,
