Where to find auth token for multi-node cluster installation?

I am working on installing Dynatrace server across a 3 node cluster. I successfully installed on the first node and can access the cluster. I am trying to install on the second node, and I get a prompt asking:

"Enter authentication token for Cluster:"

Where can I find this value? I tried using an API token which (somewhat obviously) failed.

Thanks!

Hey Hayden - this ticket makes it seem like it might be the side effect of some other issue rather than actually needing to enter the token. Not sure what to make of the resolution though.

Hey James,

Thanks for the comment. That ticket is interesting, but I don't think this one is network related. I haven't had any error messages similar to that. I just do not know where to find a cluster-level authentication token...

The fact that they don't immediately just provide the answer as to where that is makes me think it's not something you're supposed to add manually, but that's just a guess. The only thing I can think to try is when you add a cluster node the second step has a string after the --seed-auth option that might be worth trying.

I hear what you're saying and agree.

Where is this --seed-auth option that you mention? Maybe I am doing something wrong and not adding it the correct way.

This page for adding a cluster node has the two commands you run and the actuall installer script has that option, I'm thinking that might be what it is looking for.

For everyone else - we looked at this and it ended up being the case of running the original managed installer as opposed to the new cluster node script which is explained on this page: https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/dynatrace-managed/cluster-nodes/how-do-i-add-a-new-cluster-no.../

Thanks for the help James!
