ECE Installation Issue

Hi folks. Attempting to install ECE on prem using a medium installation guide. Was able to get the first 3 servers up and running no issue. When I attempt to install the 3 allocator servers, I am getting an error with the bootstrap.conf missing a paren. This happens on all 3 allocator servers.

I have search around and cant seem to find an answer. Can anyone assist?

bash <(curl -fsSL install --coordinator-host --roles-token 'eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGc...redacted.....' --roles "allocator" --availability-zone US_East_AZ2 --memory-settings '{"runner":{"xms":"1G","xmx":"1G"}, "allocator":{"xms":"4G","xmx":"4G"}}'

Elastic Cloud Enterprise Installer

Install Elastic Cloud Enterprise on this host to add its resources to an existing installation.
After installation is complete, the host becomes a runner that you can assign a role to in the Cloud UI.

This one we've seen before when that --memory-settings includes newlines or is otherwise malformed, but that's not the case here it seems (and I think I remember fixing the docs for exactly that reason, and sure enough: Deploy a medium installation | Elastic Cloud Enterprise Reference [2.10] | Elastic)

Is that --memory-settings definitely the one you used?

Alex. Thank you! It was the memory settings. There was a space after the comma that was causing the issue.
