I have a cassandra cluster with cassandra version 4.0.7, Cluster have 2 DC with 3 nodes in each DC with RF=3.I added a node in one of DC and seed node as two nodes of DC in which it was going to join.During the joining process while node was in UJ state I got these errors multiple time.

ERROR [Messaging-EventLoop-3-3] 2023-06-27 19:43:11,805 InboundConnectionInitiator.java:360 - Failed to properly handshake with peer /IP Address:57364. Closing the channel

Note:- IP Adress in Error was Error was address of nodes of both DC (As multiple errors was received)

What can we the possible reason for this.

Difficult from the information provided to be confident on the cause, but the most likely scenario is going to be around the internode security - run through the following checklist:

  • tls configuration is correct / matches on the nodes
  • certificates are trusted and in the right locations
  • if mutual tls is being used, that the new nodes certs are on the existing nodes as well
  • SSL configuration on new nodes and existing nodes match
  • Cipher configuration matches between existing and new nodes.
