Gateway cluster with data from two sources on different domains

Hi all,


I currently have a dataset that combines data from two SQL servers located on different domains (the domains are in the same tenant)


I have installed on-prem gateway on both, and if run separately they work fine. However, when I try to combine them in one cluster, as I need in order to update the data from both sources, I get the following message "This data source cannot connect to all gateway instances of the cluster. Please find more details below about specific errors for each gateway instance" - even though it says the connection are fine.


Is it possible to make a cluster with gateways to two different servers on two different domains?

Hi @JonasKjersgaard,


I haven't found any accurate limitation mentioned in document, but I think current gateway cluster only works on same domain.(in same domain with primary gateway)

Perhaps you can try to setting proxy of external gateways, then primary gateway able to access/manage them.
