That cluster.conf file looks a lot more sensible. If the nodes are still not
seeing each other then you may have to fiddle with the routers to make sure
that the multicast traffic is being passed. tcpdump will tell you whether the
traffic is moving between subnets.

It's also worth checking that there aren't any iptables rules preventing
traffic from the cluster port (6809/udp) or the multicast address reaching the
cluster manager.
