Issue

Joining a new node to a cluster may fail with the following error message:

[kern_vifmgr:info:46230] [0x809524a00] 0x809524a00.00655554(09/26/2020 00:50:17): [vifmgr_broadcast_domain_iterator::perform_cluster_join_imp] Failed to assign remaining ports to Default BD: Creating broadcast domain "Default" will result in the creation of failover group "Default" in Vserver "vservername", but a failover group with that name already exists. Try the command again with a different name.
