Re: Loadbalancer error - node does not exist

Update: It seems like it might start happening whenever the cluster gets up to maximum capacity, which is 16 nodes. Any ideas of what to look for would be appreciated, this is getting expensive.

Subject: Loadbalancer error - node does not exist

Hi, I'm running the Elastic LoadBalancer to keep our cluster down to one node when we're not using it, and then ramp up as needed. Generally (i.e. when I run tests and watch it), it works just fine. But twice now, we've had it fail to remove nodes overnight and give the following error, leaving the cluster at full blast with no jobs to run. It says the nodes don't exist, but they are there both on the AWS EC2 console and when I run qhost on the cluster. Any ideas as to the cause? Thanks!
