Nomad servers automatically federating with Consul

We setup a test Nomad cluster today and used the Consul integration - we used a difference server_service_name than our existing cluster.

It worked fine in creating a new cluster however we noticed that we automatically federated with the older cluster.

Is there a way to turn this off? This is not what I would expect to occur when using a different consul server service.

Hi @brettpatricklarson! What’s your server_join block set to?

I think I actually screwed up by not specifying the server_service_name block first and it got “stuck” federating with this cluster. Now I can’t get it “unfederated”.

You should be able to remove it with nomad server force-leave
