Error after configuring hornetq for ha/failover with SOA-5.3

Solution Verified - Updated -


I've configured a "live" and a "backup" node like described under the following links 12.

When I startup the backup node I get several errors, identical to this :

Unable to announce backup, retrying
HornetQException[errorCode=3 message=Timed out waiting to receive initial broadcast from cluster]

Unfortunately I'm unable to understand where the problem could be. Did I missed something in the configuration? One thing I should mention is, that when we used jboss messaging instead of hornetq, we had to switch from udp to tcp cluster communication to get it working. Please let me know what to do.
