Lab 16.2 HA Proxy is unable to restart when multiple backend servers

The HA Proxy started okay when 1 backend server based on the file provided though k8s first master node didn't install yet.

Any impact of this WARNING? How can I reconfigure to remove this warning?

Thanks for feedback in advance.

    Hi @josephkwong,

    The SOLUTIONS/s_16/haproxy.cfg file could help to get your haproxy service up and running without errors.

    Regards,
    -Chris

  • Thank you Chris.

    I copy and paste the SOLUTIONS/s_16/haproxy.cfg file
    ...
    # Default ciphers to use on SSL-enabled listening sockets.
    # For more information, see ciphers(1SSL). This list is from:
    # https://hynek.me/articles/hardening-your-web-servers-ssl-ciphers/
    ssl-default-bind-ciphers ECDH+AESGCM:DH+AESGCM:ECDH+AES256:DH+AES256:ECDH+AES128:DH+AES:ECDH+3DES:DH+3DES:RSA+AESGCM:RSA+AES:RSA+3DES:!aNUL$
    ssl-default-bind-options no-sslv3

    It came out the following fatal errors.
    [email protected]:/# haproxy -c -f /etc/haproxy/haproxy.cfg
    [ALERT] 312/085340 (109028) : parsing [/etc/haproxy/haproxy.cfg:34] : unknown keyword 'ssl-default-bind-ciphers' in 'defaults' section
    [ALERT] 312/085340 (109028) : parsing [/etc/haproxy/haproxy.cfg:35] : unknown keyword 'ssl-default-bind-options' in 'defaults' section

    [ALERT] 312/085340 (109028) : Fatal errors found in configuration.

    When I reverted back my previously configuration,
    ...
    # See: https://ssl-config.mozilla.org/#server=haproxy&server-version=2.0.3&config=intermediate
    ssl-default-bind-ciphers ECDHE-ECDSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:ECDHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:ECDHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA38>

    ssl-default-bind-options ssl-min-ver TLSv1.2 no-tls-tickets

    The file check is valid but it still showed this [WARNING].
    [email protected]:/# haproxy -c -f /etc/haproxy/haproxy.cfg
    [WARNING] 312/090237 (109260) : config : 'stats' statement ignored for frontend 'proxynode' as it requires HTTP mode.
    Configuration file is valid

    Kindly your further advice with thank. Have a great day, Joseph...

    Hi @josephkwong,

    Instead of copy/paste can you try to scp the entire file? Or download the tarball on the haproxy node?
    Even with the displayed warnings, can you access the haproxy console?

    Regards,
    -Chris

  • I can get access the haproxy console as attached though the displayed warnings shown, where I am figuring out why having such warning.
