Dear Cardano community,
I recently added a backup relay to my BP. I set the same CUSTOM_PEERS configuration on the topologyUpdater.sh pointing to the BP’s IP and port just like my other relay. I added the new relay’s IP to the BP’s firewall to allow TCP requests to go through the configured port and modified the staking pool with the new relay configuration using cntools. Everything looks fine on pool.vet. My backup relay is already registered and it’s online. My BP is even talking to it. However, my BP is not showing this new relay as a IN peer, just OUT.
Is this normal? Or does anyone know what could be wrong here?
Many thanks in advance for the help!
