How severe does this issue affect your experience of using Ray?
- High: It blocks me to complete my task.
I’m having trouble starting ray because I already have a redis instance (version 5.0.7) running on my development workstation.
When I run
ray start --head it fails with the error
Unable to connect to GCS at 192.168.2.14:6379. Check that (1) Ray GCS with matching version started successfully at the specified address, and (2) there is no firewall setting preventing access.
I’ve tried using passing the address of redis using --address but that also fails - it says the primary server is unreachable and a new one will be started. But then I get the same error as above.
If I shutdown my redis server, then run
ray start --head it works (but then my application based on redis queue (rq) fails).
So I’m assuming
ray depends on a different version of redis to
rq but I cannot find what version ray requires. Can someone please point me in the correct direction so I can see if I can find a version that’s mutually compatible.
