Hi All, Newbie here,
I am following the tutorial and setting up the deploy with the consul running in order to unseal the vault. When I run the vault client on the same machine as the vault server it’s all fine. I can unseal using the first key. When I try to unseal from another machine I get:
Error initializing: Put http://host_ip_address:8200/v1/sys/init: dial tcp host_ip_address:8200: connectex: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.
I should think this is possible as per the tutorial:
"The Vault can be unsealed from multiple computers and the keys should never be together. "
I’ve checked that the ports are opened and there is no local firewall. It’s running on a VM in the cloud and the inbound rules have ports 8200 and 8500 opened.
I’ve also tried this on a linux box next to me and saw the same behavior os it cannot be a cloud setting.
