Unable to add clients to existing cluster

I have a working cluster that consists of 4 nodes, each with three storage targets on them. two and two nodes are mirroring each other. All good.

Now, I've added some extra machines on the same network, and I want to add these as beegfs-clients, and this is where I've run in to some issues:

I'm mostly using the same settings as I have on the existing beegfs-clients, with some minor changes to the connInterfacesFile.

The service starts fine, and it does mount "something", but when I check the mount it is empty, and I am met with "ls: reading directory .: Remote I/O error" when I want to confirm the mount is good.

I checked the logs, and I found this:  kernel: beegfs: ls(6583): Messaging (RPC node): Invalid mirror buddy group ID: 0

And this throws me off, because I do not understand where that ID is coming from. The client shouldn't care about mirror buddy groups, should it? Also, all mirror groups are running fine, and none of them has an ID of 0.

Some help investigating would be much appreciated. I'm running Centos 7 with Beegfs 7.1.5
