can't start percona cluster 8.019 for the first time.

I setup percona xtra cluster and I tried to bootstrap my cluster for the first time, and this is my my.cnf of primary node :

# Template my.cnf for PXC

# Edit to your requirements.









#disable pxc-encrypt-cluster-traffic

# pxc-encrypt-cluster-traffic=OFF


Each node of the cluster must use the same SSL certificates, instructed by percona 8.0.12 menu

#wsrep_provider_options=“socket.ssl_key=server-key.pem;socket.ssl_cert=server cert.pem;socket.ssl_ca=ca.pem”






# Binary log expiration period is 604800 seconds, which equals 7 days

######## wsrep ###############

# Path to Galera library


# Cluster name


# Cluster connection URL contains IPs of nodes

#If no IP is found, this implies that a new cluster needs to be created,

#in order to do that you need to bootstrap this node


wsrep_cluster_address=gcomm://<node 1 IP>,<node 2 IP>,<node 3 IP>


# In order for Galera to work correctly binlog format should be ROW


# Slave thread to use



# This changes how InnoDB autoincrement locks are managed and is a requirement for Galera

Node IP address


#If wsrep_node_name is not specified,  then system hostname will be used. Changed to the name of the host!


#pxc_strict_mode allowed values: DISABLED,PERMISSIVE,ENFORCING,MASTER

# SST method


and I bootstrap using:
  systemctl start mysql@bootstrap.service

the first node is ok but when second node just start and it expected to join the cluster automatically, but it can’t start with error message in the error log: /var/log/mysqld.log shown:

why cluster can’t form?

when I was doing mariaDB everything is easy including my.cnf, but not for percona, very hard to form a cluster, any reason for it?

PXC-8.0 have pxc_encrypt_cluster_traffic enable by default, and you have in your config:
# pxc-encrypt-cluster-traffic=OFF

"PXC-8.0 have pxc_encrypt_cluster_traffic enable by default, "
if no specify , it will be ON ?
"and you have in your config:
# pxc-encrypt-cluster-traffic=OFF"
so should I make it ON or OFF ?

what I found out is I have to set it off, pxc-encrypt-cluster-traffic=OFF, it make it works! 
any idea? 
What if I want to make it on? this is the encryption between percona MySQL or between application and percona MySQL ?

If you want to make it, you will find help under this link :

but doing this can’t bootstrap the cluster at all, as you can see from my.cnf, I remark that.



sorry, my mistake

don’t use quotation mark 


as I said do not quote it can’t start at all.

I now has no problem by remark more and more parameter

this one close
