Query regarding Xtrabackup issue

soumyaranjansoumyaranjan Current User Role Novice
I am doing POC on Kubernetes. I am Following below links for setup master/slave setup using MySQL & xtrabackup.
Running below issue: In our env. we have multiple DC and in. order to communicate one DC to another we have to use kube load balancer service. I plan is to setup one master on one DC and slave on another DC and they will communicate via load balancer.  I have tested the setup but getting below error.

    I have the same issue when building MySQL cluster and that happens if I try to check if xtrabackup is ready 
    while ! nc -z xtrabackup-host 3307; do  sleep 5; done
    if I comment out this line before I start to restore database I don't get error INT_MAX QUITTING any more 
    maybe this till help
