AWS_REGION_NAME = us-east-1a
#AWS_REGION_HOST = (tried changing this and had

and then in the cluster configuration:


I get these errors

!!! ERROR - Cluster settings are not valid:
!!! ERROR - availability_zone setting 'us-east-1a' does not match the
!!! ERROR - common volume zone 'us-east-1c'

I practically tried all possible variations between these three arguments,
and I get the above error and the other error without anyone connecting
since three days now. While the same configuration file and using the

thanks again for your support,
