Step G: Add the Egress Nodes

Once you've set up the leader and secondary nodes, add the egress nodes to the cluster.

To add egress nodes

  1. On the web interface for the leader node, choose Nodes and click Add Node > Egress Only.

  2. In the Add New Egress Only Cluster Node dialog, complete the fields: Enter the hostname or IP address of the first egress node, and the password for the elemental user.

  3. Choose Create.

    The egress node is added to the cluster. This operation may take several minutes. After a few minutes, the node is added to the cluster, shaded red on the web interface. When the addition is complete, the node is shaded green.

  4. Repeat these steps for each additional egress node.
